Santa Cruz County Superintendent of Schools, CA.
Presented is the final report on a 3-year project sponsored by the Santa Cruz County, California Office of Education to develop a pupil assessment instrument listing behavioral characteristics of physically exceptional children (K-12) and to implement a program management system to serve 1,200 mentally retarded, educationally handicapped (seriously emotionally disturbed), and physically exceptional (hard of hearing, deaf, speech impaired, visually handicapped, and crippled) students in Santa Cruz and other California counties. Included in the final report are data on such topics as staff development; extent of participation; and project products, such as teacher guides, Behavioral Characteristics Progression (BCP) questionnaires, the Task Base Composite (TBC) program assessment and planning tool, and four project reports. Other topics covered include needs assessment, organizational details, parent/community involvement, choosing and describing program participants, presenting and analyzing data, and project objectives and findings. Such findings as the following were reported: that the TBC chart required revision into a linear sequence of tasks beginning with pupil entry and ending with pupil exit from the program, and that the BCP was fully implemented in all programs for exceptional children and adults. Also provided is an expenditure report, an equipment inventory, a description of project phases and per pupil costs, and a reimbursement claim. (LH)
