This Department of Education policy violates the Ch.766 statutory and regulatory requirement to provide services to these students. DOE erroneously states that Massachusetts schools only need to comply with the requirements of federal special education law for serving students in private schools. The Department ignores the state statutory and regulatory equipment to provide services to students with special needs attending private schools at private expense, as described below. It is important for parents and local administrators to ensure that students with special needs in private schools continue to receive essential services, pursuant to the requirements of state law.

      School Nursing:
      "You cannot educate an unhealthy child and you cannot keep an uneducated child healthy..." Dr. M. Jocelyn Elders, Former Secretary of Health

    The rapid changes occurring in our society and in our health care system present many challenges for the school nurse. Many students come to school shouldering a background of profound health risks, which, in turn, affect their academic progress and success. Modern technology and pharmacology have made it possible for students with special health care needs to participate within the mainstream educational setting. Through the professional expertise of the school nurse, student health needs are assessed, identified and monitored. The school nurse functions with other professionals in the school community to facilitate health and wellness so that each student will have the opportunity for academic success.
    School nursing is a specialty of nursing practice that requires extensive preparation and knowledge in the areas of:
      School Nursing Practice
      Public Health
      Emergency Care
      Program Management
      Health Education Environmental/Safety Laws and Issues Special Education Regulations Human Growth and Development New Definition of School Nursing
    "School nursing is a specialized practice of professional nursing that advances the well-being, academic success and lifelong achievement of students. To that end, school nurses facilitate positive student responses to normal development; promote health and safety; intervene with actual and/or potential health problems; provide case management services; and actively collaborate with others to build student and family capacity for adaptation, self-management, self-advocacy and learning."

    School Reform in Massachusetts: Comparing Educational Initiatives in 1893 and 1997 Michael Lorenzen The concept of reforming and changing schooling is not a new idea. This desire to make schools better has a long tradition. There are many examples of this throughout American history. However, one good example is the case of schools in Massachusetts. Two documents demonstrate the different ways educational reform has been approached. This essay will examine the written record of a speech made by Charles Eliot in 1893 where he laid out six key changes he felt were necessary for grammar schools in Massachusetts. This essay will also look at report published in 1997 by the Massachusetts Department of Education examining five years of state mandated educational reform initiatives in schooling. Surprisingly, many of the themes addressed by Eliot in 1893 are still being thought about in 1997 although there are also many differences in the documents. Description of the 1893 Speech Charles Eliot, the President of Harvard University, gave a speech at the Massachusetts State Teachers' Association Conference in December of 1893. The speech was titled, "The Grammar School of the Future." A written version of this speech was included in a collection of Eliot's work, Educational Reform: Essays and Addresses , which was published in 1898. As such, the written version of the speech has been edited and probably reads slightly different that what was presented at the conference. However, as the written version was published only a few years later and was prepared by the same author it is reasonable to assume the intellectual content remained unchanged.

    "...reform starts with you. It is time to stop wringing your hands about the state of your own school and take responsibility for changing things despite the complexities of the system.... Teachers, parents, students, administrators and community leaders don't need permission from anyone to demand change.... Like a palpable presence is a sense that the problem with the nation's schools is not that they are not what they used to be, but that they are precisely what they used to be."
