Summary

This report presents a plan of the National Association of State Directors of Special Education's Project FORUM to establish and implement the on-going process of identifying national program information needed for improving the management, administration, delivery, and effectiveness of programs and services under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. The report identifies issues and considerations for such a plan and explains the process used to develop this plan, including selection of strategies, the involvement of stakeholders, and determination of the activity's scope. Specific results of meetings and interviews to obtain stakeholder input into the plan are outlined. Key features of the plan, which is based on a marketing model, are described, including: (1) creation of a polling panel to provide initial and ongoing consumer input; (2) creation of an initial list of national program information needs (based on those identified by a 2-day focus group of experts); (3) verification of the list of identified needs by the polling panel; (4) prioritization of the categories of identified needs by a selected subgroup of the polling panel using a Delphi process; and (5) periodic re-evaluation of the proposed process for identifying national program information needs. Also noted are additional recommendations for consideration by the Office of Special Education Programs. Appendices include a paper by Cynthia L. Warger entitled "A Draft Background Paper Outlining a Process for Identifying Information That is Needed To Improve Programs for Students with Disabilities"; background information for meeting participants; a meeting agenda; and an initial list of national program information needs.
