The manual of administrative guidelines outlining program organization for the education of the mentally retarded in Kansas presents standards of program organization and operation and plans for implementing specified services for the various levels of mental retardation. Part 1 of the manual, detailing program organization, covers program philosophy and major goal, administrative structure (scope and sequence outline of administrative levels of instruction for the trainable and the educable mentally retarded), administrative organizational variations (teacher units and other specialized personnel or related administrative organizational units), and program facilities, particularly suggestions for learning centers within facilities for the retarded. Part 2 describes the statewide program of curriculum development and instructional improvement, emphasizing the administrative structure for statewide implementation of the Kansas Plan. A summary of administrative regulations for establishing public school programs for the retarded in Kansas constitutes the third section of the manual. (KW)
