The Kansas State Plan for special education for the fiscal year 1980 is presented. The plan details the background and needs of the special education population of the state. The chapter on state department operations includes revised sections on state institutions and schools and an evaluation plan, along with sections on areas such as state department administration and supervision. The chapter on local agency operations summarizes the responsibilities of local education agencies and incorporates revised sections on local comprehensive plans, least restrictive environment, mental retardation, personal and social adjustment, and physically and other health impaired. The sections on procedural due process and screening, evaluation, placement and review procedures have been reworked to include the prior notice, independent evaluation, and individualized education program requirements of the Education for All Handicapped Children Act (Public Law 94-142). The specific learning disabilities section provides the federal regulations for identifying learning disabled children. A glossary of approximately 85 special education terms is appended. (PHR)
