The Possible Relationship of the California Master Plan for Special Education to the State Department of Education Bureau of Pupil Personnel Services Plan for Improvement of Guidance Services in California Relative to Delivery of Services to Handicapped Pupils: Who's On First?
Mendocino County Office of Education, Ukiah, CA.
Service delivery to handicapped pupils is discussed in regard to the relationship between the California Master Plan for Special Education (see EC 062 915) and the Bureau of Pupil Personnel's Plan for Improvement of Guidance Services. The goals, benefits and limitations of both plans are described; and each plan is examined and compared in terms of aspects such as administrative organization, accountability, potential legislative implementation, financial support, and staffing considerations. The author concludes that the Master Plan for Special Education contains implementation proposals (lacking in the recommendations for improving guidance services) which make it worthy of statewide legislative support. Among proposed recommendations are adoption of a comprehensive plan for interagency coordination and creation of local special education advocates who have authority as well as responsibility for ensuring service delivery.
