The Role of an Administrator in the Education of Pupils with Handicapping Conditions.
New York State Education Dept. Albany. Office for the Education of Children with Handicapping Conditions.
Designed as an informational resource and planning document, this manual assists administrators in ensuring that district special education programs are in compliance with federal and New York State laws and regulations and that handicapped students are educated appropriately. Because Article 89 of the Education Law and Part 200 of the Regulations of the Commissioner of Education give particular attention to the roles of the board of education and its committee on the handicapped, these roles are emphasized. The handbook also recognizes that responsibilities for managing special education services rest with administrators at many levels. Part 1 outlines the roles and responsibilities of the board of education and the committee on the handicapped, including appointing the committee, maintaining data on and locating handicapped children, and providing programs and services. Part 2 deals with the identification, evaluation, and placement of handicapped students, including providing the individualized education program and assessing the district's success in serving handicapped students. Part 3 lists all of New York State's possible placements for handicapped children, including regular classroom programs, related services, resource rooms, and special classes; suggested administrative activities and initiatives related to each are listed. Checklists and worksheets are provided throughout. (Author/JM)
