Effective State Strategies to Promote Interagency Collaboration. A Report of the Handicapped Public Policy Analysis Project. Volume 1.
Rogers, Cheryl; Farrow, Frank
State and local efforts at interagency collaboration for handicapped children are examined in a report that first describes the mandates of P.L. 94-142, The Education For All Handicapped Children Act. Effective approaches to state-level interagency collaboration in Louisiana, Delaware, Maine, New Jersey, Michigan, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, California, Maryland, Colorado, and Utah are identified. Activities described include clarifying responsibilities for handicapped students in state-operated residential programs, promoting local interagency collaboration for specific target population groups, establishing general state policy with regard to service delivery and financial responsibilities among agencies, and sharing information among agencies. Factors contributing to the effectiveness of interagency collaboration strategies are listed, including ongoing rather than one-time collaboration and attention to local follow-through. (Sample interagency agreements are appended.) (CL)
