New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY. Office of Research, Evaluation, and Assessment.
This evaluation report describes the Quality Improvement Program Plan for Special Educators (QUIPP) which provides supplemental professional development opportunities for New York City special education professionals and paraprofessionals at the elementary, middle, and intermediate/junior high school levels. The program stresses design of the professional development program by program participants. Evaluation findings are reported for the following areas: program planning and implementation; eligible participant survey feedback; and actual participant survey/feedback. Recomendations include: (1) increase networking with other districts; (2) provide more information about the QUIPP program to eligible participants; (3) provide a greater variety of schedule choices; and (4) provide funds for a QUIPP administrator at the district level.
