M/S/P (one opposed) to approve proposal as recorded in 2/4/03 minutes with the exception of the following changes.  These changes address the committee’s questions from the previous meeting.

 

        1)    SPY 752, Academic and Behavioral Interventions, Prerequisite: SPY 700.

  SPY 757, Psychoeducational Assessment I, Prerequisite: PSY 451/551 or concurrent                 enrollment in PSY        551. Admission to school psychology program.

              SPY 800, Specialist Thesis Proposal, Prerequisite: PSY 420/520; SPY 700.  Effective Summer                            2003.

2)      SPY 801, Specialist Thesis I, will remain as originally submitted to the committee.  School Psch students will not enroll in GRC 799. Graduate Studies plans to request that the budget committee create a permanent budget for graduate student travel and research. This would alleviate the need for GRC 799.

3)      Carol Angell informed the committee that these changes impact special education in the area of electives.  She felt that this would not be an issue since special education is in the process of restructuring their program.  This can be addressed in their restructure.  Carol did request that SPE 416/516 and 429/529 be deleted from Category B. Educational Foundations-Special Education Methods.  The only class that will remain listed under this category is SPE 401/501.

4)  The implementation will NOT be retroactive to all catalogs.
