State Master Plan for Special Education in Oregon.
Baldwin, Victor A.; And Others
The State Master Plan for Special Education in Oregon is intended to assist school and district level personnel in their efforts to implement special education programs and services, to provide parents and special interest organizations with information about the rights of the handicapped and the programs and services available, and to assist other public and private agencies in coordinating the provision of special education services. The first major division of the document develops a rationale for the plan and presents the philosophy and definitions of special education in Oregon. The second major division presents major goals and objectives for special education in the state and specifies implementation activities for each objective for two levels of service delivery: State Department of Education (including coordination with other agencies), and Local Education Agencies and Intermediate Education Districts. Each activity is accompanied by a proposed date of achievement for implementation. Individual sections cover the following areas (sample subtopics are in parentheses): rationale for state master plan (litigation and legislative trends); full educational opportunities--a model (individualized education programs); protection of individual rights (protection in evaluation procedures); personnel development (needs assessment); evaluation and data system (classroom requirements); administration and organization (support services); and finance (coordination and management of funds).
