Inservice Education-Staff Development. CASE Information Dissemination Packet.
Kolenko, Cynthia L.; Schrup, Marie G.
This information packet is intended to provide special education administrators with information and materials regarding inservice education and staff development. The first section presents a research and development model based on Project TAMEC (Technical Assistance for Mainstreaming Exceptional Children), a North Carolina program which assists regular education personnel in working with students having mild handicaps. The second section presents seven "best practices" models, focusing on building-based programs and networking systems. Each listing discusses the target population; a program description; the process for evaluation, analysis, or renewal; adoption requirements; funding requirements; materials available; and a contact person. The final section focuses on structuring inservice and staff development programs. This section presents a total of 30 abstracts divided into 5 topical areas: (1) design models for inservice; (2) building-based inservice for integration; (3) strategies for rural inservice; (4) strategies for vocational inservice; and (5) references and resources for inservice.
