This report describes the specific requirements of Public Law 94-142 (the Education for All Handicapped Children Act) concerning the establishment of a Comprehensive System of Personnel Development (CSPD), Delaware's CSPD system, and a proposed action plan. The scope of the CSPD system includes inservice and preservice training for general and special education personnel based on an annual needs assessment, procedures to ensure that all personnel necessary to carry out the requirements of the Act are qualified, and procedures for acquiring and disseminating significant information derived from research and demonstration projects. Individual sections of this report address: scope of the system, participation, annual needs assessment (including detailed tables showing results of the 1990 needs assessment), inservice and preservice training plans, dissemination and adoption, and evaluation. Three appendixes present the 1990 Training Needs Survey, aggregate data on training priorities and sub-categorical preferences, and training priorities by program or teacher type. (Author/DB)
