A Compendium of Interagency Agreements: Vocational Education, Special Education, and Vocational Rehabilitation. Policy Research and Resource Series: Document 5.
Phelps, L. Allen
Since 1978, several federal and state initiatives have been implemented to strengthen the development of state-level interagency collaboration among vocational education, special education, and vocational rehabilitation. A survey of state directors of vocational education, special education, and vocational rehabilitation was conducted to ascertain the number and comprehensiveness of state-level interagency agreements among their respective agencies. It was found that over the past two years the states appear to have done a comprehensive and thorough job of developing interagency agreements, and are now making efforts to update those agreements. The main part of this document is made up of examples of 29 current interagency agreements that may offer ideas for states and local agencies to use in developing and refining their individual interagency agreements. Several innovative arrangements for sharing programs, inservice training, support services, assessment services, etc., are contained in the agreements. The last section of the compendium includes abstracts of several interagency resource documents that have been developed by federal and state agencies. (KC)
