Charter Starters Leadership Training Workbook 2: Regulatory Issues.
This workbook is part of a series devoted to all areas of charter-school development. The second of the series, this volume focuses on regulatory issues, such as special-education requirements, civil-rights regulations, federal and state laws and regulations, and requirements for parent involvement. The text is divided into four sections. Chapter one discusses civil-rights and the various issues surrounding this area of law. The chapter looks at specific equity challenges, such as selection of students, and general civil rights laws. The latter section examines the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and other legislative initiatives that address civil rights. Chapter two details various requirements in special education, offering suggestions for determining special-education eligibility, for ensuring compliance, and for accessing special-education funds. The next chapter discusses other federal regulations, such as the Equal Access Act and the Drug Free Workplace Act of 1988, and the various requirements of these laws. The last chapter dwells on state regulatory issues, such as legal status and waiver status and what must be done to comply with state laws. Each chapter features a set of "tools" that offer contact information, glossaries of terms, and other material to help found a charter school. (RJM)
