New Part 200 of the Regulations of the Commissioner of Education Effective July 1, 1982.
New York State Education Dept., Albany.
The document contains the new Part 200 of regulations for Chapter 853, a New York law governing special education services. The law allows students to be placed on the basis of handicapping conditions or on the basis of four criteria representing a pupil's specific educational need. The regulations are intended to expand upon definitions currently in existence, spell out board of education responsibilities, build flexibility and specificity into the referral process, and specify timelines for both parents and school districts. A continuum of services model is used as the programmatic basis. Separate sections of the regulations deal with the following areas: definitions; board of education responsibilities; the committee on the handicapped; procedures for referral, evaluation, individualized education program development, placement and review; procedural due process; continuum of services; program standards for programs in private schools and state operated or state supported schools; state assistance for the instruction of handicapped pupils; state reimbursement to private schools and special act school districts educating children with handicapping conditions who were previously enrolled; and reimbursement to certain state operated and state supported schools for blind, deaf, and severely handicapped children.
