A Study of the Integration of Handicapped Students in the Regular Schools of the Calgary Board of Education. Complete Report: Findings, Conclusions and Recommendations, Appendix A and Appendix B.
Canadian Inst. for Research, Calgary (Alberta).
The document, most of which consists of two appendixes, presents the complete report of a 1977 study on the extent and effects of mainstreaming handicapped children into the Calgary Public School System in Canada. The first section--the final report--provides summary statements of study findings for each of the 10 data sources, together with a discussion of conclusions and recommendations concerning the following areas: the need for board leadership and development, the need for individualized planning for mainstreamed students, the need for a longitudinal impact study, the need for demonstration schools, the need for improved strategy in all schools with mainstreamed students, and the need for continued board support of special education services and of mainstreaming. A summary of the entire study is also provided. Appendix A is a discussion of a proposed methodology to estimate costs of implementation of the recommendations contained in the final report. Costs are analyzed on a per-pupil basis and are compared with expenditures for regular students in order to set forth mean indices for various exemplary programs. Appendix B presents supporting reports of the study, describing in detail the research methods and findings from each of the 10 data sources. (DLS)
