A Study of the Effects on Special Programs for Exceptional Students Upon the Implementation of the Florida Finance Program. Final Report, Volume 2.
Foshee, James; And Others
The second of two volumes presents descriptive and statistical data collected in a study to determine the impact of the Florida Education Finance Program (FEFP) on special programs for exceptional children in 10 school districts and program development in five institutions. Case studies of the 10 districts give county code designation, date of interview, numbers of personnel interviewed, a description of the school setting, and staff findings in areas such as student identification deadline, change in size of special education (SE) classes, due process in student assignment to SE classes, FEFP emphasis on SE, full-time versus part-time classes, hiring and assignment of teachers, and allocation of materials. Tables summarize answers to questions such as "What programs do you plan to offer next year?" and responses by administrators, SE coordinators, regular teachers, visiting teachers, and psychologists. Case studies of the five institutions involve statistical data and descriptions in areas of teaching staff, curriculum, student assessment, program availability, and identification of classification of students. Noted are teacher certification levels and additional salary comparisons of institutional and district educational personnel. Attention is directed to study limitations such as data based on personal opinion without supporting data, and operation of FEFP for a period of three and a half months prior to the study. A glossary of terms such as cost factors is included. (MC)
