Utah State Board of Education Special Education Rules. Revised.
Utah State Office of Education, Salt Lake City.
These special education rules outline requirements to which Utah's local education agencies, state-operated programs, and other public and private agencies providing publicly funded education and related services to students with disabilities must adhere. The rules are in compliance with the requirements outlined in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act regulations. They spell out requirements in the following areas: general provisions; responsibilities of the state Office of Education; student identification, location, and evaluation; service delivery; due process hearing procedures; administration and governance; and funding. In addition to the rules, the document contains the Utah Agenda for Meeting the Needs of Students with Disabilities, which is a framework for special education and includes statements such as: every individual has unrealized potential for growth and the ability to learn, every individual is entitled to effective education and services consistent with his/her unique needs, and student learning is enhanced when reciprocal accountability exists among the individual, family, community, and educational system. Appendices address regulations governing placement of eligible students with disabilities in private residential schools; vocational rehabilitation services; elementary and secondary program of studies and high school graduation requirements; state certification endorsements for special education, school psychologist, and school social worker; Utah special education law; Coordinating Council for Persons with Disabilities; and an interagency memorandum of understanding.
