The progress report covers the first year activities of the East Central Kansas Cooperative in Education's interrelated service delivery system for providing services for handicapped students in rural areas. Following a presentation of the rationale for using the interrelated service delivery approach, the following project objectives and the results for each are listed: (1) organize and implement 15 interrelated classrooms serving handicapped students within the 4 districts served; (2) conduct and evaluate an inservice program adequate for training teacher competencies needed to implement an interrelated program and develop a manual based on inservice strategies; (3) identify and provide needed support services for teachers assigned to interrelated classrooms in the areas of behavior management, instructional planning, and instructional methods and materials; (4) identify and utilize procedures which maximize the efficacy of interrelated classrooms; (5) facilitate and document evidence of consumer acceptance and satisfaction; and (6) investigate and document evidence of the effectiveness of the program via student achievement and progress. The appendices, which comprise the majority of the report, include forms for inservice training, teacher support and activity, instructional materials centers, consumer satisfaction, and pupil performance.
