The third year of the contract, 1993-94, was one of culminating activities for the Region F Technical Assistance Center (TAC), as well as a year for preparation for reauthorization. The TAC continued to provide assistance that focused on improving curriculum and instruction across all aspects of Chapter 1. A significant change was the increase in consultations and collaborative working arrangements between the Region F TAC and state and district personnel. The TAC delivered the services outlined in each of the state plans for technical assistance. Evaluation assistance remained a high priority, exemplified by the Stanislaus County project (California) and an alternative assessment project in Hawaii. Program improvement was the primary focus of TAC assistance in California, Washington, Oregon, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho. The Program Improvement Initiative was fully implemented this year with 40 schools across the state. The TAC continued its work in curriculum and instruction. Parent participation remained an important focus of TAC efforts, as did outreach and conference programs and activities. Activities are summarized by task and by state. Fourteen tables and five figures illustrate the discussion. (SLD)
