Our proposal needs the following section added to it: Arrangement for any special education and related services provided pursuant to ORS 338.165 for children with disabilities who may attend the school. This section needs to explain how the school will provide services for children with disabilities who enroll. The sponsoring school district has the responsibility of providing FAPE (free appropriate public education) to students with disabilities enrolled in charter schools. The district is responsible for the oversight of special education in all of its schools, including charter schools, and for ensuring special education services are provided and administered according to state and federal law.
The charter schools administration and provision of special education is a collaborative project with the district and other agencies or special education service providers.
Consideration for special education needs to be taken into account during the original design of the charter school. The proposal should clearly demonstrate our understanding of the special education referral process and service model in conjunction with the proposed sponsor district.
The Individuals with Disabilities ACT (IDEA) is a law ensuring services to children with disabilities throughout the nation. It governs how states and public agencies provide early intervention, special education and related services to more than 6.5 million eligible infants, toddlers, children and youth with disabilities. Children and youth (ages 3-21) receive special education and related services under IDEA Part B.
