SETRC Basic Training Program. O.E.E. Evaluation Report, 1981-82.
Tobias, Robert; And Others
The Special Education Training and Resource Center (SETRC) program was developed in 1979-80 to design, provide, and coordinate specialized staff and parent training to ensure that handicapped students in New York City Schools receive appropriate and meaningful education in accordance with public policy. An evaluation of the program in the 1981-82 school year showed that, as in the past, the program performed competently and efficiently. Tasks undertaken included: preparing a substantial quantity of training materials; maintaining accurate records of extensive and diversified activities; writing detailed reports; conducting surveys; and providing a wide variety of parent and teacher workshops, intensive training, and inservice courses. In addition, the 1981-82 program addressed, for the first time, issues in teaching bilingual/bicultural handicapped children. The SETRC program was judged effective in designing and executing the various forms of staff training needed to ensure the appropriate education of all handicapped children. The program was well perceived by the participants, and further funding was recommended. (AOS)
