A Guide for the Management of Special Education Programs. 2.0 Procedures for Use of the Task Base Composite.
Santa Cruz County Superintendent of Schools, CA.
The second volume of an eight-part series on a task-based management system for special education programs offers detailed procedures for use of the task base composite (TBC), a listing of approximately 700 task descriptions classified under 20 functions and divided according to whether the task is necessary to support a program or directly necessary for the education of pupils. Use of the TBC is related to program definition and development, task identification, responsibility assignments, staff loading, development of job descriptions, and resource allocation. For example, task identification is said to involve the following steps: posting the TBC chart, collecting learner objectives from all teachers, estimating the total number of pupils for whom the behavioral strands apply, reviewing the TBC chart to determine which program tasks are necessary for the attainment of learner objectives, determining which of the 20 functions are required to operate the program, and determining personnel positions involved in completing each task. Included are samples of TBC position worksheets, job description forms, resource calculation sheets, procedures evaluation forms, and chart evaluation forms.
