A Data-Based Special Education Delivery System: The Pine County Model.
Tindal, Gerald; And Others
The Pine County (Minnesota) Special Education System has adapted a database for use in decision making regarding programs for learning disabled and behavior problem students. The system is used for decisions in seven areas: identification, initial assessment, eligibility determination, individualized education program (IEP) selection, IEP development, IEP implementation review, and program review. Within each decision area, the perspective underlying the model for that decision is presented along with two case examples which clarify the data organization and decision making for two behaviors, reading and social behavior. For each decision, a student support team (usually the principal, psychologist, classroom teacher, and special education teacher) is convened, which reviews the data, completes the form, and makes the decision. Sample forms are included. (SW)
