A Plan for the Implementation of Chapter 766 in Vocational/Technical School Environments. Proceedings of a Special Education Summer Workshop, July, 1974.
Linari, Ronald F.
The document is an attempt to provide a comprehensive approach to the determination and development of purposeful educational plans in occupationally related areas for special needs children. The synthesis of information compiled from this plan was intended to provide school systems with an accurate account of the requirements of Chapter 766 of the Comprehensive Education Act of 1972, and the core evaluation process; the information was also intended as a potential model for any school system in Massachusetts. The document is the result of an 11-day workshop at which professionals from various areas of special education presented pertinent information related to the education and training of special needs students; participants developed and summarized major issues and concerns to assist in the successful implementation of Chapter 766 at a regional technical school. The resultant materials are organized under four broad headings: (1) developing vocational/technical education for students with special needs, (2) planning instruction for special needs students, (3) major administrative concerns, and (4) summary of workshop participants and final recommendations. Appended are two forms: (1) student information for determining vocational potential and programing, and (2) a survey of services for students with special needs in regional vocational/technical schools.
