Richardson, Edwin W.
The program for school media services in the Des Moines Independent Community School District is a combination of individual building media center programs and the district support services for these PK-12 programs, and its purpose is to ensure that students and staff have access to and are effective users of information. The district or central media services center supplements the building centers as well as providing services for teachers and administrators on a district wide basis. This report includes: (1) a context evaluation which covers the history of media services, policies, standards, current services involving audiovisual aids and other educational equipment, COLLAGE (teacher made materials), and program needs and goals; (2) an input evaluation of the central office and building budgets; (3) a process evaluation including goals and objectives for 1990-1991, job descriptions for the director and managers, inservice and professional development, and program management; (4) a product evaluation of library services and instructional materials, educational media repair service, production and graphics, building media centers, outcomes, and adherence to standards; and (5) a brief statement of future plans. The 11 appendices, which constitute almost half of the report, include excerpts from various local and state policy and procedure manuals as well as the table of contents and preface of "Information Power." Also included are a COLLAGE survey form for 1990 and a check in/out form. (DB)
