Procedures for Insuring District-Wide Standards in Special Education Programming.
Parks, P. Donald
Described is the development of procedures for standardizing, on a district-wide basis, the administration of special education programs. It is explained that the project required three phases: first, development of a manual which set forth those administrative procedures which schools would follow; second, implementation of the procedures outlined in the manual; and third, evaluation of the program. Activities conducted at each phase of the project are detailed, and evaluation results are noted to support the project's success. An appended sample of the administrator manual (which makes up the bulk of the document) includes sections on the following: procedures for referral to special education programs; role and function of the school assessment committee; role and function of the county; notification of parents, hearing procedures, and use of the services information system; procedures for speech therapy placement; procedures for resource room placement; procedures for self-contained classroom placement; and procedures for home/hospital instruction. Also appended are checklists used in the evaluation phase and statements from practicum reviewers. (SBH)
