Here is the link to the report I referenced: http://www.uscrossier.org/pullias/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/nsf-monograph-1.12.15FINAL.pdf

Also, here are some of the Kezar pubs that are in press where people might find more information (besides the report above):

Enhancing Data Discovery and Usability for Inquiry in Biology Education

This RCN-UBE project will bring together two communities critical in expanding student access to authentic science experiences: managers of data repositories and education specialists. Representatives from at least 15 organizations will participate in a two-day workshop to discuss strategies for enhancing data discovery and usability, to propose standards for data sharing, and to make recommendations for incorporating authentic data in inquiry-based teaching in biology.

The Power of Partnerships: A Guide from the NSF GK-12 Program

We are pleased to announce the release of The Power of Partnerships, a new publication from the GK-12 program that provides effective practices for anyone who wants to create a project that partners STEM graduate students with K-12 teachers on a sustained basis. The recommendations come from the GK-12 community–faculty, graduate students, K-12 teachers, program managers, and evaluators. The writing team, 34 participants from GK-12 projects around the US and Puerto Rico, came to Washington, DC in fall 2011 to determine the best way to tell the world about the program and to capture the GK-12 legacy. We encourage you to read the guide and share it with colleagues in your community, the US, and internationally.

This was brought up in the Managing Networks discussion as an example to emulate in creating a management manual for RCNs.
