Regional Resource Center (RRC) Network Accountability Report. Executive Summary. The First RRC Network Performance Measurement Look.
US Department of Commerce
The Regional Resource Center (RRC) program mission is to strengthen the capacity of state systems of education and early intervention to improve results for infants, toddlers, children and youth with disabilities and their families. It is one of the longest and most successful technical assistance projects of the Office of Special Education Programs, US Department of Education. The full program currently includes six individual RRCs and one Federal Resource Center, but the focus of this effort is on RRC performance. Network, as used in this report, refers to the six RRCs. The Regional Resource Center (RRC) Network Accountability Report documents the efforts and results of the RRC Network to: (1) agree on a common set of performance measures; (2) collect the data on those measures, by region; and (3) aggregate those data and use them to make statements about the effects of RRC technical assistance for clients and their systems. This report is organized by Performance Measure, followed by a collection of lessons learned, not only from the findings but also from the process of obtaining them.
