Virginia State Model. Final Report.
Horne, Vance M.
The document describes the Virginia Interagency Linkage Model, a system of interagency agreements between vocational education, special education, and vocational rehabilitative services. Formal written agreements are developed between the agencies at both the state and local levels and coordinated by a linkage team with all included agencies represented. Document sections are concerned with: local level implementation, requirements that vocational educators be included in developing the vocational component of a handicapped child's individualized education program, strong points of the model (such as smoother transfer of students into rehabilitation and vocational programs), unresolved problems and questions (such as determining evaluation criteria for the linkage agreements and activities), the role of the state team leader, the role of the local team leader, and future directions and developments. Among seven attachments are the outline of the model, and sample interagency service agreements between the Department of Education and other agencies. Appended are lists of persons on the Virginia model team at the state and several local levels, associated correspondence, a workshop agenda, and news releases. (DB)
