Virgin Islands Educational Dissemination System. Final Report.
Oliver, James M.; And Others
This document reports on a 5-year project developed by the Department of Education of the U.S. Virgin Islands to create a useful information and technical assistance system for professional personnel to bring about educational change and growth. The project was based on the original Interstate Project in Dissemination model (with the exception that the territory consisted only of two school districts) and depended upon the development of (1) linking, (2) management, and (3) resources. Of these three components, linking proved to be the key to successful dissemination. Contents of the report include sections on the following topics: methods of procedures; impact; client responsiveness and satisfaction; significant learnings; outside agencies; the project's first year of institutionalization (1982-83); equity; summary of results to date; before and after National Institute of Education funding; and an evaluation of the 5-year project by Sam D. Sieber titled "Getting It Together." The main document contains six tables. Sieber's evaluation, which occupies the last half of the document, contains 16 tables. An appendix includes client and nonclient questionnaires. (IW)
