Monitoring Manual for Determining Compliance with Public Law 94-142. Revised.
South Carolina State Dept. of Education, Columbia.
Designed to assist service providers as they strive to provide a full service goal for all handicapped pupils, this manual consists of checklists for monitoring compliance with Public Law 94-142 (Education for All Handicapped Children Act). Checklists of components in general policy areas are: (1) policy requirements (LEAs - Local Educational Agencies); (2) verification of annual child count; (3) program entry; (4) individualized education programs; and (5) policy requirements (SOPs - State Operated Programs). Supplementary worksheets, also in the checklist format, are provided to give LEAs and SOPs a detailed and itemized description of the specific policy components which should be addressed under each of the general policy areas. The worksheets are designed to assist the LEAs and SOPs in the development of comprehensive policies/procedures and to enable the State Educational Agency (SEA) monitoring team to conduct a thorough review of the policies established. The four worksheets pertain to due process hearings, procedural safeguards, confidentiality, and least restrictive environment. (JH)
