Charter Schools Designed for Children with Disabilities: An Initial Examination of Issues and Questions Raised. Special Report. Primers on Special Education in Charter Schools
Mead, Julie F.
National Association of State Directors of Special Education
This report addresses both why and how charter schools designed for students with disabilities operate their programs and provides information learned about charter schools specifically designed for children with disabilities through a series of questions and answers. First, the legal and policy context in which such schools develop and operate is described. This description ends with a fuller discussion of the questions associated with the operation of charter schools designed for children with disabilities. The study's methodology is then briefly outlined. Finally, the findings of the study are presented in a series of questions and answers designed both to respond to the issues raised and to provide technical assistance to operators of such charter schools and others who may be contemplating similar charter schools. In so doing, implications for practice and questions for further study are also identified. Appended are: (1) Survey of State Directors of Special Education; (2) Interview Protocol; (3) Identified Charter Schools for Children with Disabilities by State; and (4) Statutory Language that May Limit Charter Schools Designed for Children With Disabilities. (Contains 2 figures, 2 tables and 6 footnotes.) [This resource was produced by the TA Customizer Project.]
