New York Partnership for Statewide Systems Change, 2000. Final Report.
This final report describes activities and accomplishments of the New York Partnership for Statewide Systems Change 2000, a 5-year project to increase and improve inclusive educational services to New York State students with severe disabilities at the secondary level and students with serious emotional disturbance at the elementary and middle school levels. The project provided inservice training, technical assistance, community training, higher education planning, and model demonstration and evaluation activities to accomplish the following five goals: (1) expand and enhance the capability of local school districts (LEAs) throughout the state to serve students with severe disabilities in general education settings; (2) design and propose revisions to funding and regulations to enhance LEAs to collaborate with regional public and private agencies; (3) design and propose interagency agreement models to formalize the provision of comprehensive educational and student support services; (4) expand inclusive teacher teacher-education-approved programs leading to certification in both general and special education; and (5) coordinate activities with related projects and agencies involved in the development and validation of most promising practices. Individual sections of this report describe the project's goals and objectives, major accomplishments, accomplishments by specific goals, problems encountered, technical changes, and impact. (CR)
