Administrative Manual for Special Education.
Moore, Susan; And Others
The manual for Michigan special education administrators addresses the rules and regulations of P.L. 94-142 (the Education for All Handicapped Children Act) and recommendations from the Special Education Task Force of 1977. The first paper, titled "Levels of Legal Authority Related to the Education of Handicapped Persons in Michigan" by J. Baxter and R. Baldwin, clarifies the levels of state and federal regulations governing education for the handicapped. A second chapter contains the Administrators Procedures Act of 1969 which covers the process that must be followed whenever the Department of Education wishes to revise their rules. The process for emergency rules and declaratory rulings is also presented. General provisions and programs and services under the School Code of 1976 (P.A. 451) are presented in a third chapter. The administrative rules for special education (Chapter 4) are given as a source of information for dealing with questions regarding the provision of programs and services. A fifth chapter contains Special Education Services Area official interpretations of various legislative mandates. The Federal Annual Program Plan (Chapter 6) outlines procedures for implementing the rules and regulations of P.L. 94-142 relating to: right to education, priorities, child identification, individualized education programs, procedural safeguards, least restrictive environments, due process, personnel development, participation of private schools, evaluation, and confidentiality. A copy of the State Aid Act for 1981-82 makes up Chapter 7. A final chapter provides information on resources within the Michigan Department of Education. (SB)
