Management Systems for Gifted and Special Education Programs: A Manual for Cost-Effective Administration.
Kemnitz, Thomas Milton; And Others
The book proposes ways in which programs for gifted and handicapped students can be managed to make the best use of resources. An initial section provides guidelines for administrators who manage gifted programing. Guidelines touch upon the following topics: analysis of current efforts, assessment of staff and program needs, student identification procedures, budgetary concerns, design of program prototypes, community learning resources, enrichment activities, and evaluation. The second section examines aspects of developing a comprehensive management system in special education, with emphasis on the formation of an information management system. The succeeding three sections are devoted to preparing the budget (with sample worksheets included), formulating an evaluation approach (with information on such topics as criterion-referenced objectives and program implementation), and developing an orderly system of funding (with attention to a nine-step model involving grant seeking).
