The Improvement of Staff Development for General and Special Administration Through a New Partnership: Final Report.
University Council for Educational Administration, Columbus, OH.
The Special and General Education Leadership (SAGE) Project was a 3 year effort focusing on inservice activities for administrators and other personnel geared toward implementation of P.L. 94-142, the Education for All Handicapped Children Act. The project involved three objectives: to design, implement, and evaluate a series of staff development experiences for integrating general and special education administrators; to develop and test materials and systems for improving staff development experiences for general and special education administrators; and to extend the use of tested products and processes to school systems, state education agencies, and universities beyond those directly involved in the project. Following a SAGE Project overview are sections which address specific activities, accomplishments of the program, slippages in attainment, highlights of successful phases, less successful phases, spinoffs from the project, a concluding statement, and a financial statement. The bulk of the document consists of a section presenting the Collaborative Leadership Conference Report and Evaluation and appended materials. Among papers contained within the conference report are the following titles and authors: "Developing Administrative Arrangements and Curricular Alternatives Toward Providing the Handicapped Equal Access and Opportunities: A Historical Perspective" (G. Alley); "Administrative Training: The Key that Turns Law to Quality" (F. Baars); "Community Cooperation Toward the Employment and Training of the Handicapped" (J. Balmer); "The Affirmative Action Report" (T. Bowdle); "Toward a Sense of 'Intellectual Crisis'" (R. Felker); "Elaborated Images, Realistic Aspirations, High Expectations" (W. Kritek); "Political Considerations in the Move from Tolerance to Advocacy" (W. Malloy); and "Collaborative Action in the Education and Employment of Handicapped People" (C. Mortland). Appendixes include copies of newsletters on Project SAGE activities, examples of plans addressing the school based collaborative and multidisciplinary approach, and observations and anthropological reports on SAGE workshops.
