The California Strategic Plan for Special Education: Ours for Tomorrow.
Winget, Patricia, Ed.; Kirk, Joyce, Ed.
The California Strategic Plan for Special Education sets specific goals and outcomes for the future in 11 critical areas: early intervention for infants and preschoolers, prevention, assessment, student outcomes and quality indicators, service delivery, education in the least restrictive environment, regionalization for students with low incidence disabilities, transition to adult life, new and effective partnerships with parents, sufficient numbers of qualified special education personnel, and an equitable responsive funding model. The first chapter identifies critical challenges facing special education and the importance of planning, evaluation, and implementation. The second chapter stresses the development of a unified system of education of which special education is a part. Each of the 11 areas is then presented in terms of special goals; planned outcomes for 1990-1991, 1991-1992, and beyond 1992; and statewide strategies and activities. (DB)
