Kansas Arts Resource Training System (KARTS). Final Report on Three (3) Year.
Kansas State Dept. of Education, Topeka.
The federally-funded Kansas Arts Resource Training System (KARTS), administered through the Special Education Administration section of the Kansas State Department of Education, sought to bring quality training in arts-related services geographically closer to Kansas schools and to ensure ongoing programming and resource availability to handicapped children through 12 trained District Resource Coordinators (DRCs). The DRCs provide technical assistance and in-service training in the related arts to educators, therapists, parents, and others in their local districts and regional areas. They also serve as models in their communities for incorporating the arts via music, visual art, movement, drama, and storytelling into the curriculum of the special students they serve. This final report describes objectives of the 3-year program, activities, training courses completed by the DRCs, detailed evaluation procedures and instruments, and finances. Appendices, which make up over half of the document, contain an evaluation of DRCs based on videotaped presentations, evaluation committee statements and letters to DRCs, tabulation of evaluation data for KARTS third-year workshops, compilation of post-workshop training needs assessment data, DRCs final evaluation of KARTS, and evaluation forms.
