A Desk Reference Manual on Special Education for School Principals.
Chapman, Elaine K.; And Others
The manual is intended to help Indiana secondary school principals in the delivery of special education services within their buildings. Introductory sections cover the basis of Indiana's special education law and outlines state and federal definitions of 10 handicapping conditions. The next seven sections provide administrative guidelines on the following topics (sample subtopics in parentheses): pre-referral (parent and student involvement); referrals (timelines); evaluation (a description of 41 commonly used evaluation instruments); the case conference committee and the individualized education program (least restrictive environment, mainstreaming, scheduling, extracurricular activities, grading, graduation requirements); case review; and due process (suspension, expulsion, exclusion). Two final sections provide a glossary of common special education terms and information on state and federal special education resources. (CL)
