The General Education/Special Education Interface Task Force Report.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento. Div. of Special Education.
The report of a California task force examines new or revised special education service delivery models which would allow for maximum interaction between special education and general education. After a review of the literature and a 2-day policy forum, the task force concluded that there is no one model appropriate for all schools and all mildly/moderately handicapped children. Each school is encouraged to develop a unified system resulting from: the collaborative effort of the entire staff; available resources; a choice of teaching strategies; and a continuum of services. Anticipated outcomes include increased acquisition of the core curriculum by a greater number of students, a decrease in grade-level retention and the dropout rate, and increased success rate for transition to post-secondary education and/or employment. After an introduction and a statement of findings, the report presents 27 questions and answers about a unified system, followed by separate sections which cover: safeguards, funding, governance, core curriculum, personnel development, staffing, implementation, and evaluation. Each of these topics is presented in the form of identified issues and task force recommendations. Also included are a listing of the task force membership, 26 references, and a glossary of 16 terms.
