Weaver, Betsy; Halloway, Sydney
The report provides summary evaluative data on 18 federally funded special education projects in Boston involving more than 2,518 students, 632 parents, and 1,535 school staff. An introductory section provides background information on funding and levels of services provided to handicapped students in the Boston public schools. Section 2 focuses on the monitoring and documentation system designed to evolve into a general evaluaton and tracking framework for all federal projects. Section 3 presents data on student participation (including distribution by language, race, and sex), staff participation, parent participation, and services provided to students (support services, teaching, individual counseling, screening, and occupational placement), staff, and parents. The impact and benefit of federal funding is examined via objectives established in participant service reports and a pilot verification process in which participants responded regarding satisfaction with services.
