Balancing Team Integrity with Administrative Control in the Development and Management of Special Education Programs.
Del-Val, Patricia B.; Griffin, Carol Lee
The paper reviews the experiences of special education administrators in Quincy (MA) Public Schools regarding compliance with P.L. 94-142, the Education for All Handicapped Children Act. Noted are the decentralized model of Pupil Personnel Service Teams, the administrator's role in guiding teachers to set priorities in academic and vocational skills for the students, the development of alternative program models (such as preschool programs and resource room programs), the development of systemwide procedures, and flexibility of programing (as demonstrated in rapid program expansion for students with severe emotional and behavior problems).
