The Merger…

    Education to establish regional diagnostic and
    learning resource centers and defined purpose,
    duties, and responsibilities.

    children and
  • Assist districts in providing interdisciplinary

26
The Early Years
  • There were 18 centers defined by geography and
    demographics.
  • Centers had anywhere from 1 to 9 counties in
    their service areas.
  • Some of the original host districts from the two
    networks changed.
  • Centers were funded by application with general
    revenue and Part B under authority of BEES.

27
The Early Years
  • Through FY 1991 each center was assigned a
    staffing ratio for Diagnostic Resources, Learning
    Resources, Child Find, and Secretarial/Clerical
    staff.

28
The Early Years
  • Beginning in 1992 funding was based on an
    allocation of core staff (1 staff person for each
    of seven functions, one library technical
    assistant, 2 support staff, and, for
    multi-district centers only, an administrative
    allocation for one administrator and one
    administrative secretary) and a per student base
    allocation.

29
The Early Years
  • The amounts based on the formula were for
    allocation purposes only and each center had
    discretion to assign staff based on existing
    resources and priorities.
  • Each center was to provide equitable services
    across all functions.

30
The Early Years
  • Centers submitted multi-year project applications
    and there was a prescribed cycle for renewal of
    projects.
  • All projects did not apply at the same time
    although budgets and certifications had to be
    updated annually.
  • The state provided a list of priorities annually
    that had to be addressed.

31
Service Delivery
  • Consultants did lots of classroom visitation.
  • Material collections provided loan materials for
    use in classrooms.
  • Mass screening of school age population and
    entering kindergartners characterized child find.
  • Diagnostic services supplemented school district
    testing services.

32
Service Delivery
  • FDLRS maintained all of the special education
    inservice records for the districts.
  • Inservice was targeted to special education
    teachers.

33
Administrative Structure
  • Board of Directors Superintendents of
    participating districts and HRS administrators
  • Coordinating Council ESE administrators of
    participating districts and HRS field

  • Major network evaluation in 1986-87

  • Recommendations updated service delivery without
    altering basic objective of the network

35

    needs

    teachers
  • Updated materials collections to current
    priorities
  • Added technology as a priority
  • Disbanded the Board of Directors

36
Scrutinized Again

    recommendations about future mission and
    operations of FDLRS network
