Development and Implementation of Secondary Special Education Programs.
Discussed are criteria for developing and implementing secondary school special education programs leading to a high school diploma for exceptional students in Michigan. It is explained that handicapped students should be integrated into regular programs whenever possible but that an Educational Planning and Placement Committee may recommend special programs or services based on an individualized assessment of a student's needs and followed by establishment of educational goals and performance objectives. Recommended are minimal performance objectives for personal adjustment, prevocational and vocational education for students who cannot complete a regular course of study. Vocational rehabilitation services are briefly described, and an educational accountability model is presented for developing secondary level programs for the handicapped. An appendix contains procedures for involving parents, students, teacher, administrators, and community members in helping the Board of Education to select appropriate terminal objectives. (LH)
