Regular and Special Educators Inservice: A Model of Cooperative Effort.
van Duyne, H. John; And Others
The Regular Education Inservice Program (REIT) at Bowling Green State University (Ohio) assists instructional resource centers (IRC's) and local educational agencies (LEA's) in developing and implementing inservice non-degree programs which respond to the mandates of Public Law 94-142. The target population is regular education personnel working with handicapped personnel in urban, suburban, and rural areas. The REIT network design includes four areas of collaboration between the University, LEA's, and IRC's: needs assessment, planning and implementation of inservice, and evaluation. Programs are offered on three levels: building-based; LEA-based; and region-wide. A program evaluation of REIT components found that new needs assessment techniques and more REIT grant personnel were needed as liaisons to meet the growing demand for REIT services. Project abstracts and descriptions illustrate the range of activities sponsored by REIT. Examples include weekend sessions for school guidance counselors, a workshop on administration of special education programs in an urban setting, and a two-day program for 30 elementary teachers on mainstreaming and individualized instruction techniques for their school.
