An Assessment of the Impact of Special Education Programs on Non-Special Education School Building Staff. Report No. 77-13.
Ramey, Madelaine; James, Jim
This report assesses the impact of special education programs on non-special education school building staff in Seattle, Washington, during the 1976-1977 school year. The report presents the results of a survey that was designed to investigate two questions: (1) to what extent does the presence of a special education program result in expenditures of non-special education staff time; and (2) what is the state of readiness for bringing more special education students into the regular classroom? It is recommended that the calculation of cost per pupil for special education include the costs of services delivered by other personnel. Also called for is the initiation of an inservice training program for non-special education staff to teach handicapped students in the regular classroom. (APM)
