A Full Service Model for Implementing PL 94-142: A TEAM Planning Approach.
Punzo, Richard A., Jr.; Caetano, Anthony P.
Recent federal and state laws and regulations mandate new and increased services for handicapped students served by local school districts and educational service agencies. Public Law 94-142 requires that free appropriate educational programs be provided for all handicapped children. To react appropriately to both federal and state mandates and to meet the demand for new and changing programs, local education agencies must initiate effective planning for implementation of full services for handicapped students. The model described in this speech, Team-Management Decision-Making for Educators and Administrators to Meet Special Education Mandates (TEAMS), is currently being utilized in over 40 districts in four states. Outlined in this speech are characteristics of groups that should be represented on the local planning TEAM, and procedures for developing a full service delivery system. (Author/MLF)
