Implementing Special Education. School Management Handbook Number 4.
National Association of Elementary School Principals, Arlington, VA.
This part of the School Management Handbook provides elementary school administrators with an overview of some of the special education regulations mandated in Public Law 94-142, the Education for All Handicapped Children Act. Section 1 of the document defines screening and evaluation procedures for identifying handicapping conditions of children that require special educational attention. In addition, the section offers guidelines for ensuring that evaluation materials and procedures are nondiscriminatory. Section 2 discusses regulations regarding the placement of handicapped students, reviewing the concept of the "least restrictive environment" and the related requirements for mainstreaming. State placement requirements governing both public and private placement are also explained. The third section covers the general curriculum, extracurricular activities, uses of minimum competency testing, and staffing requirements. Section 4 treats required supportive services, including medical and psychological services and other services needed to assure the educational benefits of the school experience. All four sections include specific recommendations for school policy regarding special education. (PGD)
