Special Education in Transition.
New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY. Div. of Special Education.
This report contains recommendations by the New York City Board of Education's Division of Special Education for (1) integrating the School Mental Health Services Plan with the current pupil certification process, and (2) restructuring the leadership system of the Field Operations Unit. The major emphasis in the recommendations is to develop a special education program in New York City which can meet the challenges set forth in State and Federal laws, in recent court cases, and in the Chancellor's and Board's commitments to improve the quality of life for all children in the city. The present structure of the Division of Special Education is described and the establishment of two new offices (the Office of Student Support Services and the Office of Instructional Programs and Services) is proposed. The structures and functions of these new offices are outlined. Appended to the report are technical details concerning the staffing and day-to-day operations of the offices. (Author/GC)
