Guide to Mainstreaming Planning Committees.
Price, Marianne; And Others
The guide describes Project IMPACT (Implementing Mainstreaming Programs through Active Cooperative Training), an approach involving teachers, parents, and support personnel in Mainstreaming Planning Committees (MPCs) to consider general issues and procedures. Based on experiences over a 2-year period (September 1, 1979-February 28, 1982) of pilot MPCs in elementary and secondary schools, the guidebook addresses the following topics (sample subtopics in parentheses): the role of the building principal; the needs assessment (development and administration to determine operational, curricular, and inservice training needs); the role of the facilitator; structure of the MPC workshop; responsibilties of the MPC; costs (covering meeting room, refreshments, duplication, and personnel); and evaluation. Extensive appendixes include resource material for the facilitator on such topics as P.L. 94-142, the Education for All Handicapped Children Act, and curriculum modification. (CL)
