    Education Options, Chapter 10 - SPECIAL NEEDS CHILDREN
    A child with special needs can be defined as one who differs developmentally from a normal child as a result either of a physical, mental, or emotional handicap, a developmental delay, or a specific learning disability. Both the Handicapped Child and Supplementary Education allowances are available to assist families with the extraordinary costs of providing special educational or related services to their children with special needs. Parents should understand the medical clearance procedures that determine eligibility for the allowances and know which will play a role in the assignment process. Learning disabilities are the most frequently encountered developmental problem among Foreign Service children. EVALUATION OF DEVELOPMENTAL PROBLEMS Children with developmental problems will receive educational evaluations as part of the medical clearance process. As soon as it is suspected, parents should describe any developmental problem on the child's medical history form so that evaluation and treatment plans can be formulated early in the child's life. Experts in the field of special education stress the value of early intervention. Children with learning disabilities should not be thought of as abnormal; they simply have a different system for processing information. The key for parents and teachers is to discover what the child's processing system is and to help the child compensate with their strengths when fitting in, as far as possible, to the ordinary educational process.

    Promotion Policies in the Urban High School. ERIC/CUE Digest No. 48.
    Webb, Michael; Bunten, Paul A school's promotion policy is an integral component of its overall educational policy. In conjunction with achievement goals, it defines the levels of performance that permit students to move through grade levels and to graduate. In the nineteenth century, the organization of high schools by grade level became an established practice. Students were not allowed to progress from one grade level to the nextor to receive a high school diplomauntil they met specific performance standards. During the Depression, however, a system of "social promotions" began to be instituted. In an effort to maintain students' interest in school and to prevent them from dropping out, schools began to consider age and maturity as well as achievement in deciding whether to promote students. In recent years, there has been a resurgence of public interest in student promotions, primarily in response to evidence that substantial numbers of students progress through school without acquiring basic skills or fundamental academic competencies. Social promotions, differentiated tracking, and other practices that allow students to "squeak through" high school with low performance have been criticized as serving neither society nor students well. Rigid, uniform promotion policies, on the other hand, have been implicated as encouraging students to drop out. In the context of this debate, this digest presents a resume of the various promotion policies and practices in current use by secondary schools, particularly those in urban areas.

    Disabilities Transportation Guidelines
    WASHINGTON, DC — In May 1995 the District of Columbia Public Schools wrote the Office of Special Education Programs in the U.S. Dept. of Education and requested clarification of its obligations to provide transportation to students with disabilities. The agency’s response, while not federal law, clarifies the Clinton Administration’s policy in this important area.
    Transportation is defined as a related service under Part B of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). It is the only related service that is provided students outside a school building.
    Written by Dr. Thomas Hehir, OSEP director, the letter addresses each of the four concerns raised by DCPS. The letter is reproduced here in its entirety with only minor editorial notations to assist reader’s understanding. Hehir’s letter is addressed to Franklin L. Smith, Superintendent of the District of Columbia Public Schools.

    to Provide Transportation Services to Students With Disabilities
    By Dr. Linda Bluth
    In a clear and precise manner, Thomas Hehir, director of the federal Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) responded to a letter from the Superintendent of the Public Schools of the District of Columbia requesting clarification regarding the obligation of the District of Columbia Public Schools to provide transportation services to students with disabilities. Four questions were asked. These questions were: 1) Is transportation required for all students with disabilities? 2) Is a school district required to provide tokens or monies to secure public transportation for students with disabilities when it does not provide the same for non disabled students? 3) What is meant by "specialized transportation?" 4) If transportation is to be regarded in the same manner as other related services, are goals and objectives required on the IEP?

    Project Scaffold Trains Teachers for Special Education Called Project Scaffold, the program is a collaborative effort among CUA, The Lt. Joseph P. Kennedy Institute, the U.S. Department of Education, the District of Columbia public schools and the Archdiocese of Washington schools, says Tom Long, an associate professor of education who helped draft the grant proposal with his colleagues at the Kennedy Institute. Professor Long is drafting a curriculum for the program. The U.S. Department of Education grant will award approximately $596,789 to Project Scaffold over three years. Catholic University will contribute approximately $122,000 to the collaborative project, while the District of Columbia public school system will provide $70,000. Professor Long explains that organizers expect two cycles of recruits. The first group would begin classes in January 2001. The curriculum being developed draws on a teaching model developed by Frank Yekovich and Carol Walker, professors in the department who have developed a teaching model that integrates real-life experiences with technology to make classroom learning more effective. Professor Long notes that grant writers are working closely with Larry Callahan, superintendent of the Washington archdiocesan schools, and Anne Gay, M.A. 1985, Ph.D. 1986, assistant superintendent of special education for the District of Columbia public school district, as they design the program.

    Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison
    November 7, 2001 Page: S11515 THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA APPROPRIATIONS ACT, 2002 MRS. HUTCHISON . Mr. President, Senator Sessions and I are offering this amendment for one simple reason: We want to improve the quality of education for the District of Columbia. Our amendment will preserve an estimated $44 million for special education funding in the District. The amendment will continue a provision contained in the last three DC appropriations bills that cap the allowable fees an attorney may charge for a child's special education placement in the District of Columbia. We raise the cap in the present law from $125 an hour to $150 per hour, and a per-case limit from $2,500 to $3,000. Our amendment also continues a provision contained in last year's bill that allows the District of Columbia, acting through the mayor and school superintendent, to waive those caps if they believe it is in the best interest of the D.C. students to do so. I also point out that our amendment will prevent an estimated $32 million in retroactive attorney's fees from being awarded, as has been threatened by the D.C. Circuit Court. That court has ruled that should this fee cap be lifted, they will go back and actually undo the will of Congress by awarding all the billed attorney fees in excess of the caps during the last 3 years. Our amendment is supported by the school board and the superintendent of schools in the District. And the mayor has told me he also has supported this. They support it because it allows them to put the dollars in education for the children. They are trying to use the money for the education programs. In fact, they have put the money they have saved since the caps were put in place, that would have gone to attorney's fees, into the special needs programs, and they have increased the number of children who now can be taken into the programs.

    Administrator's Checklist As a part of the comprehensive K-12 plan to create peaceable schools, all District of Columbia Public Schools will develop School Emergency Response Plans and establish School-based Emergency Response Teams. The following information is provided as a template for the development of local school procedures in response to unexpected emergencies. The D.C. Public Schools has adopted the following definition of a crisis: A crisis is defined as an event which produces a temporary state of psychological disequilibrium and a subsequent state of emotional turmoil. A crisis represents a disruption in the school environment. During a crisis a school may be thrown into a state of massive disruption and turmoil. In the instance of a severe accident or tragedy on a school campus, having a school-wide emergency response plan can significantly reduce the level of disruption. A structured response by a trained team of staff members can support the school in returning to the normal routine in the aftermath of a crisis. The goal is to return a school to a normal routine as quickly as possible after the crisis.

    Editorial: Learning about special ed
    From the Journal Sentinel Last Updated: Dec. 24, 2002 The financing of special education is a mess. When Congress mandated that schools address the special needs of disabled students, it vowed to pick up the bulk of the tab. That has turned out to be another broken promise of politicians. Meanwhile, the cost of the special help for students is soaring - squeezing funds for regular education. One reason for the higher costs is that the ranks of disabled students are expanding. The 1990s started out with one of every nine public school students across the nation classified as disabled and ended with one of every eight so classified. Experts debate the reasons for the rise. Some argue that schools are better at identifying disabilities than they once were. Others say the number of disabled children is in fact rising. Still others contend that schools are inappropriately labeling more and more students as disabled.
