Special Education in the Great City Schools: IEP and Personnel Development.
Kowalski, Anthony P., Ed.; Payne, Joyce, Ed.
The booklet includes eight presentations from workshops organized by the Council of the Great City Schools on issues in implementing P.L. 94-142, the Education for All Handicapped Children Act. The first section, by J. Harvey, presents an overview of federal laws and regulations concerning the individualized education program and comprehensive system of personnel development. Three articles in the second section address the issue of individualized education programs. Articles include "The Individualized Education Program: Some Observations" (J. Camille Vautour, M. Vautour); "The Design, Implementation and Evaluation of an IEP" (R. Brown); and "The Individualized Education Plan as a Child Find Instrument" (R. Rinaldi). The requirements for a comprehensive system of personnel development are addressed by three papers in the third section: "Planning for the Implementation of a Comprehensive System of Personnel Development" (J. Payne); "Comprehensive System of Personnel Development - the Total Process" (E. Dambruch); and "Special Education Personnel Development - An Urban Administrator's Perspective" (A. Sullivan). A. Kowalski concludes the document with a paper on "The SETAC (Special Education Technical Assistance Consortium) Regional Training Workshops". (CL)
