Ronda C. Talley
The system of Multicultural Pluralistic Assessment (SOMPA) has been used at Pueblo, Colorado, in Pueblo School District #60 since 1975. State and local education administrators are now ready to speak out on events which lead to the SOMPA’s adoption as well as its impact in helping meet the Office of Civil Rights mandate to correct for ethnic disproportionality in its special education programs. Statements regarding the SOMPA’s usefulness and adequacy as qualitatively judged by school district personnel, state department of education consultants,and representatives of the Denver Office of Civil Rights are presented.
