The Placement and Education of Children with Handicapping Conditions in Private, State-Operated and State-Supported Schools.
New York State Education Dept. Albany. Office for the Education of Children with Handicapping Conditions.
The guidelines cover processes for placing handicapped students in private or (New York) state operated or state supported schools. Procedures are set forth regarding placements by each of three approaches: (1) contracts with private schools (in or out of state); (2) parent application for placement in state operated or state supported schools; and (3) placement in private settings by public agencies such as social services. For each of the three types of placement, information is provided on local district responsibilities, roles of the parents and of the state education department, the private or state school responsibility, placement and development of the individualized education program (IEP), due process considerations, and funding aspects. It is explained that the three processes share requirements for IEPs, placement in the least restrictive environment, and availability of a full continuum of special services. (CL)
