National Association of State Directors of Special Education
The purpose of this document is to provide charter school authorizers with targeted technical assistance related to special education in charter schools. Charter school laws are unique to each state, and they provide a wide range of policies and practices for the hundred of authorizers chartering schools nationally. As a result, providing authorizers with technical assistance related to special education is particularly challenging. However, with input from a wide range of stakeholders, the authors created this primer to provide charter authorizers with the basic information they need to advise charter schools regarding special education. The document also provides insight into the variety of policies and practices that other authorizers are implementing. (Contains 6 footnotes.)
