Regulations Governing Special Education Programs for Handicapped Children and Youth in Virginia.
Virginia State Dept. of Education, Richmond. Office of Special and Compensatory Education.
The regulations interpret Virginia's special education legislation as well as P.L. 94-142, the Education For All Handicapped Children Act. Responsibilities of the State Department of Education, including preparing and submitting for approval the Amended Annual Program Plan for the Education of the Handicapped, are considered. The bulk of the regulations focus on six areas of responsibility of local school divisions and state agencies: (1) identification, evaluation, and eligibility (screening, referral, evaluation, eligibility); (2) service delivery (Individualized Education Programs); (3) procedural safeguards (due process, confidentiality, complaint procedures); (4) requirements for establishing surrogate parent procedures for local school divisions and applicable state agencies and institutions (role, appointment, and rights of surrogate parents); (5) administration and governance (personnel development, regional programs); and (6) funding (reimbursement to local school divisions and state operated programs, state funds, federal funds). The final section considers responsibilities of state boards, agencies, and institutions for education and training of children in residence or custody. (CL)
