A Survey of the Opinions of School Psychologists, Administrators, Teachers, and University Trainers on the Delivery of Psychological Services in South Carolina's Public Schools.
South Carolina State Dept. of Education, Columbia. Office of Programs for the Handicapped.
This report provides information to the Department of Education, university trainers, school psychologists, district superintendents and legislators to assist in short- and long-range planning for the efficient delivery of school psychological services. Though specifically designed for use in South Carolina, the model could be used by any state wishing to obtain similar information. Questionnaires were mailed to public school administrators, teachers, school psychologists and university trainers, resulting in an extensive data base of existing practices and needed areas for improvement. The questionnaire was designed to elicit respondents' opinions in the following areas: (1) the current status of the delivery of school psychologists' services; (2) the priority service needs for local educational agencies as they relate to school psychologists' services; (3) the needs of university training programs, especially concerning service delivery to handicapped children; and (4) recommendations to improve the quality of school psychologists' services. The report was developed in order to help implement Public Laws 93-380 and 94-142, which mandate the provision of a free and appropriate education for all handicapped children. (Author/BP)
