New Jersey State Dept. of Education, Trenton. Div. of Special Education.
This report is the 10th in a series of reports on the status of special education in New Jersey. It presents statistical data about New Jersey students with educational disabilities, their special education programs, special education personnel, and other related data for the school years 1990-91 and 1991-92. Preliminary information describes the Division of Special Education, its structure, and its activities. The bulk of the document consists of 34 tables and graphs of statistics. These are grouped by category with each category preceded by an analysis and identification of major trends. Broad categories deal with trends in: classification rates; placement of pupils with disabilities; classification rates by race and gender; related services; staff ratios; pupils with disabilities exiting education; and referrals, evaluations, reevaluations, new classifications, changed classifications, and declassifications. A few of the specific tables provide data on: classification rates by different district groupings, pupils with educational disabilities by classification and age; enrollment of pupils with educational disabilities by classification and age; trends in rates of various classifications; percent of each classification in each placement; number of pupils and proportions in various placements; ratios of male/female classification rates; number and percentages of pupils receiving related services; district staffing patterns; and enrollment by age in special education. A glossary of abbreviations and a chart of district classification rates are also included. (DB)
