Wentling, Tim L.; Piland, William E.
This document, one of 12 guides that have been developed to facilitate evaluation by and for local education agency (LEA) personnel in Illinois, suggests a two-part analysis for assessing the LEA's identification process and service provision to special needs (handicapped, disadvantaged, and limited-English proficient) students. The first part of this activity deals with the assessment of the identification process; the second part focuses on rating the effectiveness of services by staff and students. The guide has been designed to aid the person who has responsibility for leading this particular activity. It includes three sections. The first section on preliminary considerations contains a brief explanation of this evaluation activity and the necessary steps to prepare for the evaluation undertaking. Suggestions are included for holding a staff meeting to discuss the activity. The second section of the guide is a procedure/task breakdown, which outlines suggested tasks for conducting this evaluation activity. The third section of this guide contains supporting documents, including information handouts, example documents, and references. (KC)
