Danaher, Joan, Ed.; Kraus, Robert, Ed.
The 11th edition of the Section 619 Profile describes services provided under the Preschool Grants Program for Children with Disabilities (Section 619 of Part B) of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). It presents current and/or historical information for all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, which are all eligible to receive Part B, Section 619 funds. The state and jurisdictional Section 619 Coordinators from 44 states provided updated information for this edition. For those states and jurisdictions that did not participate, information from other resources is at times included. The information presented in this edition was gathered and updated through May 2002. Extensive tables provide statistical and other data on: (1) administration; (2) funding; (3) interagency coordination; (4) personnel; (5) transition; (6) accreditation and monitoring; (7) use of IEPs, IFSPs; (8) family-centered services; (9) outcome measures; (10) pre-kindergarten initiatives; (11) initiatives for special populations; (12) special education mandates and legislation; (13) preschool program data (appropriations, child count); and (14) eligibility policies and practices for young children under Part B of IDEA. The appendices contain contact information for the state and jurisdictional Section 619 Program coordinators, preschool program contacts from BIA and other outlying areas, and preschool-specific information from the "Twenty-third Annual Report to Congress on the Implementation of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act" by the U.S. Department of Education (2001).
