The report summarizes the findings of a study of the processes, strategies, and experiences of 61 individuals involved with or affected by implementation of Public Law 94-142 (the Education for All Handicapped Children Act) in Oregon. The focus of the survey is on school districts' initial attempts to determine requirements of the law and develop strategies for meeting those requirements, and efforts to implement new or modified programs and procedures. Results and recommendations are discussed in the following four areas: planning and policy development, procedural safeguards, services coordination, and training. The two primary needs identified by district personnel were provision of a comprehensive training program addressing the specific components of P.L. 94-142 and its implementation at the local level and the establishment of a statewide information system in which examples, models, and materials on a variety of handicapping conditions are made available and accessible to local districts.
