Extractions: Site Map May 9, 2000 Tougher stances on juvenile crime in school have a disproportionate impact on minorities and students with disabilities, according to a recent study by Washington, D.C.'s Justice Policy Institute and the Children's Law Center, a non-profit legal services firm in Kentucky. Even as statistics show a drop in violent crime in recent years, growing fear among parents and educators is generating public support for more frequent suspensions and expulsions. With minorities and students with disabilities already over-represented in the population of suspended and expelled youth, the policy groups argue, those students will be the first to feel the impact of stricter disciplinary plans with shorter review and referral cycles. Violence is Dropping Despite the highly publicized tragedies at schools in Littleton, Colo., Paducah, Ky., and several other areas in recent years, the overall incidence of violent crime on school property is dropping, the policy groups say in their report, School House Hype: Two Years Later . School-associated violent deaths dropped 40 percent, from 43 to 26, between the 1997-98 school year and the 1998-99 school year. Nevertheless, the number of U.S. adults who say they worry about the safety of their local schools increased nearly 50 percent in that period.

Extractions: Partners for Success: Resource Center for Families and Schools Introduction Each public school child who receives special education and related services must have an Individualized Education Program (IEP). Each IEP must be designed for one student and must be a truly individualized document. The IEP creates an opportunity for teachers, parents, school administrators, related services personnel, and students (when appropriate) to work together to improve educational results for children with disabilities. The IEP is the cornerstone of a quality education for each child with a disability. To create an effective IEP, parents, teachers, other school staffand often the studentmust come together to look closely at the student's unique needs. These individuals pool knowledge, experience, and commitment to design an educational program that will help the student be involved in, and progress in, the general curriculum. The IEP guides the delivery of special education support and services for the student with a disability. Without a doubt, writingand implementingan effective IEP requires teamwork.
