Emerging Accountability Systems within Part C and Section 619 Programs
Freund, Maxine; Ohlson, Cheryl; Browne, Barbara; Kavulic, Christy
Teacher Education and Special Education, v29 n3 p168-178 Sum 2006
Within recent years, federal legislation has required schools to develop and implement standards-based accountability systems for the purposes of evaluating their performance. Although the implementation of accountability systems for K-12 programs is well underway, the design and implementation of such systems for Part C and Section 619 programs lag significantly behind. This article will provide a brief review of accountability-related laws and current efforts to design accountability systems for infants and young children with disabilities and will discuss the challenges inherent in the design of such systems for Part C and Section 619 programs. Finally, and most importantly, the article will address the implications of these accountability initiatives for personnel preparation programs within institutions of higher education.
