Palm Beach Gardens, Fl (PRWEB) February 21, 2013
LRP Publications, educators’ most trusted source for practical and legal education guidance since 1985, today announced the launch of its new special education newsletter. The Charter School Special Education Compliance Advisor serves as a monthly roadmap to navigating the complex legal requirements and administrative responsibilities specific to helping students with disabilities in charter schools. Each issue explains mandates under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, and Americans with Disabilities Act, plus delivers best practices from the field.
Monthly issues of Charter School Special Education Compliance Advisor help charter school administrators tackle leading concerns including responsibility for special education oversight, gaining support from state education agencies, managing behavior of students with disabilities, and building relationships with parents, plus provide top guidance from attorneys to:
- Locate, identify, and evaluate students with disabilities
- Provide students with appropriate individualized education programs
- Ensure students with disabilities are served in the least restrictive environment
- Make available to parents all safeguards due to them under the law
In addition, every issue summarizes relevant judicial rulings, state educational agency decisions, and Office for Civil Rights Letters of Findings, explaining where charter schools erred and how readers can avoid missteps that lead to disputes. Also featured is advice directly from a law firm that specializes in charter school law, discussing compliant ways to ensure that students receive a free appropriate public education as required by the IDEA.
The February issue of Charter School Special Education Compliance Advisor spotlights expert advice from special education school law attorney Lisa A. Corr of Young, Minney and Corr, LLC. Her firm, based in Sacramento, California, is a leader in charter school law, with experience representing over 500 charter schools throughout the state.
“Charter schools may be exempt from certain state or local rules that inhibit the flexible operation and management of public schools, but not from rules relating to federal disability laws -- and they have affirmative duties to serve students with disabilities,” said Corr.
