In February, 1978, Mount Lawley College agreed to undertake an evaluation of the Balga Special School for the Education Department of Western Australia. Preliminary discussions were held with the Superintendent of the Research Branch and the Principal of Balga Special School. The purpose was to determine the parameters of the evaluation.
It was agreed that the College was to be responsible for the conceptual framework of the program. It was also agreed that this framework was to be approved by the Superintendent of the Research Branch and the Principal of the Balga Special School.
A second consideration was the length of time to complete the evaluation. It was agreed that if possible the evaluation activities should be finalised in the 1978 school year with a report to appear soon after that.
A further consideration was that the evaluation should be consultative and that the school staff should be informed and where possible closely involved in the evaluation activities. As a result of this a number of committees were established to facilitate the evaluation.
