Abstract: This survey assessed the current status of mainstreaming practices as perceived by a random sample of elementary music educators in the Southern Division of MENC. The questions focused on three areas of interest: administrative support, instructional adaptations, and impact of mainstreaming on students. Responses indicate that teachers perceive administrative support for mainstreaming to be minimal. Teachers indicated a moderate amount of instructional modification to meet the needs of mainstreamed students. Only 1% of respondents indicated that they had previously participated in Individual Educational Program Development.
