Missouri State Dept. of Elementary and Secondary Education, Jefferson City.
Missouri's Video Instructional Development and Educational Opportunity Program (VIDEO), enacted by the General Assembly of the state of Missouri through Senate Bill 709, encourages all educational institutions in the state to supplement educational opportunities through the use of telecommunications technology, including instructional television programming and satellite broadcast instruction. VIDEO has three subprograms: (1) grants to public school districts, institutions of higher education, and public television stations for equipment and instruction; (2) development of instructional programs to be transmitted through the airwaves or by cable available free of charge to the public; and (3) development of instructional programs to be made available on a subscription basis. Grants for initial access, continuation, broadcast, program development, and discretionary funds for innovative projects are available under the VIDEO program. This report presents summaries of the first three years of the program, including numbers and types of schools participating, the amount of funding provided, and the size and number of grants made. Brief descriptions of successful projects funded by VIDEO are provided in the last section of the report. (KRN)
