Guide for Evaluation of Special Education Programs and Related Pupil Personnel Services.
New Jersey State Dept. of Education, Trenton.
Two purposes are served by this guide: to allow school districts to examine their special education programs and related pupil personnel services, and to aid state departments of education in evaluating the nature, scope, and quality of school district offerings to handicapped students. The guide is divided into two parts: one provides forms for tabulating data and the other consists of chapters, each dealing with a specific component to be assessed. Criteria, derived from federal and state legislation and regulations and professional practices, are listed for evaluating each component. Questions are also provided to assist in examining the significance of the collected data and to understand the implications for corrective action. The components to be evaluated are: the annual plan for special education and related services; identification, screening, and referral; evaluation and classification; individualized educational programs; special education programs and related services; program administration; pupil personnel services; staff development, orientation, and training; pupil records; transportation; physical facilities; finance and budget; services to pupils in private schools; and community and interagency relations. A number of checklists are included. (MH)
