Delaware State Dept. of Education, Dover.
This manual addresses the state and federal requirements for the administration and delivery of services and supports for children with disabilities under the age of 21 in Delaware. It is designed to provide a single source of regulatory requirements which apply to programs for children with disabilities, a cross reference of federal and state requirements, a means for the improvement of quality and scope of programs, and a basis for monitoring. The manual is organized to follow the flow of processes related to the identification, evaluation, and placement of children. Pages utilize a three-column format: the left column contains index reference and key words; the next column contains the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, Part B regulations published on March 12, 1999; and the right column contains the regulations of the Delaware Department of Education (DOE). The right column also contains Delaware DOE notes and applicable brief sections of the Delaware Code. Following the body of the manual, several appendices are provided, including sample forms, interagency agreements summary listings, other applicable DOE regulations of the State Board of Education, identification procedures for determination of a learning disability, sections of the Delaware Code, and definitions of key terms.
