Education rule change aids disabled
Local educators argue it's not enough
Of The Post and Courier Staff
A change announced Tuesday in the federal No Child Left Behind education accountability law recognizes that severely disabled children cannot meet the same academic standards as their nondisabled peers. But local educators complain the U.S. Education Department did not go far enough in revising the law's unrealistic requirements. "It does help, but barely," said Wanda Whatley, Berkeley County School District's assistant superintendent for learning services. "It's like throwing us a little bone, but we'll take whatever we can get." The rule change announced by U.S. Secretary of Education Rod Paige affects students with the most "significant cognitive disabilities" who don't take the same standardized test as others their age. It allows up to 1 percent of a district's total number of students to test off grade level and still count toward meeting academic progress goals. That means, for example, that a severely disabled eighth-grader whose mind functions like a third-grader, and therefore learns third-grade standards at school, can take the third-grade Palmetto Achievement Challenge Test, and the score will still count.

GENERAL GUIDELINES FOR ALL ACCOMMODATIONS SPECIAL NEEDS COMMITTEES Some A.A. entities are attempting to meet such needs by forming Special Needs Committees. Since the goal is to make A.A. accessible, some committees refer to themselves as Accessibilities Committees. In some localities committees name themselves according to the specific need addressed, such as “Hearing Impaired Committee.” When one or more members of a group have special needs (such as the need for an American Sign Language interpreter or wheelchair accessibility, or have an illness which prevents them from getting to the meeting room), A.A. members from that group will attempt to see that those needs are met. The members of a Special Needs Committee explore, develop and offer resources to make the A.A. message and participation in our program available to everyone who reaches out for it. A G.S.O. staff member who serves on the Special Needs assignment, is available as a resource and communicates with local Special Needs Committees.

Star Schools Cycle Three - 1992
Cycle Three: The following six "general" projects were funded in the third (FY 1992-94) cycle:
  • Satellite Educational Resources Consortium (SERC) , also a grantee in cycle one, expanded its use of technology through five new initiatives including increasing interactivity between students and on-air teachers through computer networking; expanding opportunities in mathematics and science for middle schools; enriching teacher support using distance learning technologies; creating a series of national forums involving school policymakers; and strengthening the linkages between state departments, public television entities, local schools, institutions of higher education, teacher training institutions, telecommunications companies, and other distance learning providers.
  • Educational Service District 101 (ESD 101) served a predominately rural and remote area. The project served two populations of adults and youth with special needs those with limited English proficiency and persons who are functionally ill-prepared for the workplace. ESD 101 chose as its mission to enable students to achieve world class standards in the core subject areas by providing (a) quality instructional programming for various grade levels as well as adults, including workplace basics and skills; (b) inservice courses and teleconferences for teachers, administrators, board members, and parents; (c) technical and information support to schools; and (d) an effective evaluation plan that examined student performance and other issues.

Troutman Sanders LLP in the News From the September 16, 2003 Richmond Times Dispatch
OFFICIALS, MOTHER AT ODDS OVER MAINSTREAMING Two weeks into the school year, Molly Jimerson is still at home. The 5-year-old wakes up every morning to watch her older sisters get ready for school and catch the bus. But Molly, who should be in kindergarten, goes nowhere. Instead, she spends much of her day sitting on the sofa or in her mother's lap, watching TV and looking at books. Molly has cerebral palsy. She cannot speak and she cannot walk, but her mother says you can tell she knows she is left out. "Today when she saw her sisters going to school," said her mom, Jennifer Peers, "she started crying." It's not that Molly isn't welcome at school. It's just that the Chesterfield County school system's idea of what is best for Molly doesn't match Peers'. She wants Molly, who communicates by using a computer with a touch-screen, in a regular kindergarten classroom in her neighborhood school; the county believes she would be better served in a self-contained classroom for moderately mentally disabled children in a school that has not been determined. In this era of "No Child Left Behind," the bus hasn't stopped at Molly's house.

Special Needs
The most important thing to remember with (most) special needs children is that they learn an objection/problem if it's shown to them in a way that they understand. Yes, it does take time and a strong will (on the parents part) to explore the many ways of showing a child something that he/she just cannot get. Children are learning DELAYED instead of learning DISABLED. There are no special requirements placed on the homeschooling child with special needs.

Special Education – Finance Education Commission of the States • 700 Broadway, Suite 1200 • Denver, CO 80203-3460 • 303.299.3600 • Fax: 303.296.8332 • Examples of State Approaches To Special Education Finance Compiled by Molly Burke September 2000 Updated October 2003 States have chosen several different ways to incorporate the higher cost of educating a special education student into their financing formulas. North Carolina uses a flat grant system, applying a fixed amount of funding per student. Some states, such as New Hampshire, simply weight all special education students the same in their formulas. This means that a student with a substantial physical disability has the same weight as a student with a minor reading disability if both students are enrolled in special education programs. Some states have created subcategories of special education students and provided each of those with a specific weight (e.g., South Carolina and Texas). Another approach is to weight a student based on his or her ability to spend time in a “regular classroom” (e.g., Iowa). This system provides the student a higher formula weight for the extra time he or she must spend outside of a regular classroom. The approach New York takes is to provide all special education students with a single weight plus an additional weight based on the district’s financial need.
