Meissner, Margit; Patton, Ellen
The "Graduate Information Booklet" provides directory-type information on Montgomery County (Maryland) services for disabled students who are graduating from high school. The first section on practical information explains armed services registration, acquisition of school records, personal identification cards, social security cards, reduced-fare public transportation cards, taxi service for persons with physical handicaps, food stamps, child care, consumer protection, free clothing, and library services. Other sections list employment services, vocational rehabilitation services, career counseling programs, emergency assistance, crisis intervention, mental health resources, support groups, recreational programs, and sources of further education and training. The "Answers to Frequently Asked Questions..." leaflet explains the Montgomery County Public Schools' requirements for earning a diploma; the requirements for earning a certificate; the role of the Admission, Review and Dismissal Committee in gearing a special education student toward a certificate rather than a diploma; due process rights; the role of transition planning; and post-graduation options.
