Special Education Compliance: Program Review Standards and Indicators.
Missouri State Dept. of Elementary and Secondary Education, Jefferson City. Div. of Special Education.
This manual contains special education standards and indicators for educating children with disabilities in Missouri. It is divided into four main sections. Section 1 contains special education compliance standards based upon the federal Office of Special Education Programs Continuous Improvement Monitoring Program clusters and indicators. The standards are organized around 11 focus areas: suspension/expulsion, procedural safeguards, evaluation, special education and related services, least restrictive environment, secondary transition, dropouts, child find, personnel, general administration, and state and district-wide assessment. For each of the focus areas, standards have been identified as they apply in one of three major areas: administrative requirements, performance requirements, and process requirements. Section 2 identifies program compliance indicators to assist individuals responsible for the administration of special education programs in implementing all required regulations and to assist them in meeting the program review standards. The indicators are divided into the following documents: administrative procedures, special education process, discipline, speech implementer model, transfers, and eligibility determinations. Section 3 contains monitoring checklists for each of the documents. Section 4 contains appendices that include information on placement options, parent participation in meetings, student transfers, state performance goals and indicators, and federal regulations. (CR)
