Data Base for Exceptional Students Including the Sensory Impaired.
Judge, Freda C.; Sconiers, Frank
The development of the data bank and tracking system used by the Alabama State Department of Education is reviewed. A form to be filled out by the teacher was developed and pilot tested. Problems, including a lack of consistency in student records, were identified. Following passage of P.L. 94-142, the Education for All Handicapped Children Act, the system was reworked and put into place. The Special Tracking System provides data on Child Find, least restrictive environment, as well as other special education areas including competency test modifications (such as low vision aid or interpretation). Sample forms are appended. (CL)
