Special Education and Resource Center (SETRC), 1989-1990. OREA Report.
New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY. Office of Research, Evaluation, and Assessment.
The 1989-90 activities of New York City Public Schools' Special Education Training and Resource Center (SETRC), supported by the New York State Education Department, are reviewed and evaluated. The resource center program was designed to provide training to regular, special, and occupational education personnel; parents; and support services staff in order that all might work effectively with handicapped students. The SETRC program targeted four areas for training: educational personnel; local needs; parents; and information dissemination. The SETRC also provided information and materials through its nine regional centers. The program's training objectives for occupational education personnel, local needs, parent training, support staff, and elementary and special education personnel were met and exceeded, although objectives for training of regular education personnel were not quite met. Recommendations for rescheduling workshops, meeting materials needs, and inservice training are discussed. (PB)
