Pupil Evaluation Team Handbook.
Glass, Ray; And Others
This handbook is designed to assist educators in Maine to implement the Pupil Evaluation Team (PET) process. PET is described as a group composed of parents, school professionals, and representatives of agencies responsible for determining special education needs of exceptional students. Chapters deal with: (1) the role of the PET chairperson within the school system; (2) the student screening process; (3) the referral of students to the PET; (4) evaluation procedures; (5) preparation of incividual education programs (IEP); and (6) due process rights for students. Each chapter has sections dealing with major questions, checklists for PET program evaluation, and a list of resources for further information. A section of sample forms from various school districts and agencies is included for the chapters on referral, evaluation, IEP, and due process, as a guide for developing or reviewing local forms.
