Ramey, Madelaine; James, Jim
This report describes 1976-77 student enrollment trends, student and staff characteristics, assessment and placement procedures, and program costs for Seattle, Washington's special education program for the handicapped. The study's objectives were: (1) to compare current special education enrollment within and across programs with enrollment of past years; (2) to describe demographic characteristics of students enrolled in special education programs within and across programs; (3) to describe current special education assessment, placement and intervention practices; (4) to describe special education teaching staff in regard to sex, age, ethnic group, and educational background; and (5) to determine the cost per pupil enrolled in each special education program. The report states objectives one and four were fully met, and the remaining objectives were only partially met because of the lack of an adequate data storage and retrieval system. (Author/APM)
