Also included is information on State Department of Education accomplishments, student results, school district programs, services and personnel, dispute resolution, funding, and unmet needs.

Next, data on school district programs and services are presented including number of special education students served, related services, and placement in the least restrictive environment. The last three sections concerning students with disabilities address resolution of special education disputes, special education funding, and the unmet needs of students with disabilities. Information provided for gifted and talented students includes identification of three department of education accomplishments and data on numbers of gifted/talented students served, the services provided, gifted and talented funding, and five unmet needs of gifted and talented students. Four appendices provide additional data on funding and number of students served by district. (DB)
