The handbook details Colorado's educational services to handicapped students and discusses the state's progress (1977-78 fiscal year) in insuring appropriate education as required by the 1973 Handicapped Children's Educational Act. Sections briefly address the following topics: the student (number and age range identified); the staff (total number of special education staff, student-teacher ratio, and role of ancillary service staff); the service (including resource rooms, self contained classes, and work study programs); the cost (per student expenditure); and the Colorado administrative unit.
