Summary of Survey Materials Collected To Support the Multi-Agency Collaborative Initiative on Inclusive School Reform. Project FORUM.
Catlett, Susan M.
This brief paper summarizes survey materials gathered by the Multi-Agency Collaborative Initiative on Inclusive School Reform. The agencies involved are the National Association of State Directors of Special Education, the Council for Exceptional Children, the National Education Association, and the American Federation of Teachers and other organizations. The Collaborative's first step was to identify school districts or school sites that have effectively implemented inclusive school strategies. A survey was also conducted to identify resources in three categories: (1) statewide initiatives, (2) information documents or products, and (3) personnel preparation programs. A total of 309 school districts or schools from 38 states were nominated and 266 resources were identified. Information on statewide initiatives was provided by 25 states, references for information products by 21 states, and information about personnel preparation programs by 21 states. Appendices contain the SpecialNet message sent to State Directors of Special Education requesting nominations; the survey form sent; and a summary of state responses, by state, including contacts for more information.
