What the Law Says
Top of page
In Minnesota, charter schools are analogous to freestanding school districts, similar to a very small local education agency (LEA) or an independent school district. Federal and state law mandate that charter schools provide a free and appropriate education for children and youth with disabilities. Charter school planners and operators need to understand the basic elements of the federal and state laws on education for students with disabilities in order to give appropriate consideration to these laws in policy and programming decisions. The following presents basic terms of charter school special education responsibilities. More detail is provided in the Minnesota Charter Schools Special Education Handbook , which is a very helpful document for any charter operator (see Resources IDEA requires all public schools to provide for the following:
  • child find or identification of children with disabilities

C. Definitions 1. disabled student includes every child child under age three whoneeds special instruction and resident or child of a resident of minnesota.
The purpose of this policy is to provide for the transportation of students consistent with the requirements of law.
A. It is the policy of the school district to provide for the transportation of students in a manner which will protect their health, welfare and safety. B. The school district recognizes that transportation is an essential part of the school district services to students and parents but further recognizes that transportation by school bus is a privilege and not a right for an eligible student. C. Definitions
1. "Disabled student" includes every child who has a hearing impairment, visual disability, speech or language impairment, physical handicap, other health impairment, mental handicap, emotional/behavioral disorder, specific learning disability, or deaf/blind disability and needs special instruction and services, as determined by the standards of the Department of Children, Families and Learning. In addition, every child under age three who needs special instruction and services, as determined by the standards of the Department of Children, Families and Learning, because the child has a substantial delay or has an identifiable physical or mental condition known to hinder normal development is a child with a disability.

Making Schools Work Better for All Children
By Thomas Bertonneau
Viewpoint on Public Issues, The Mackinac Center , October 6, 1997 Forgotten children. Troubled youth. Learning disabled. Students with special needs. Whatever the euphemism, these are children who are often not well served in the conventional public school setting. At the same time, many people think that these students can not be served well by the private sector either, but nothing could be further from the truth. It is time to lay to rest the myth that private schools are elitist institutions that "skim the cream" and leave all the toughest kids to the public schools. The private sector, including private sectarian schools, religious schools, nonpublic agencies, and home schools, offers a wide variety of education programs for this difficult-to-educate population. When public schools or agencies cannot serve a particular student, they sometimes contract with a private sector group to do the job. The Directory for Exceptional Children lists roughly 3,000 special education schools and facilities in the private sector nationwide. Their costs of educating a student vary widely, depending in large part on the nature of the disability category served, and may also include the cost of medical care and transportation. Examples include Sobriety High in Edina, Minnesota, which educates 9th through 12th grade students in recovery from chemical dependency. The famed Boys Town, based in Nebraska, directly cares for more than 27,000 boys and girls annually in fourteen states and the District of Columbia. The Helicon Shelter Education Program, a division of Children’s Comprehensive Services, provides certified teachers, materials, curriculum, and academic recordkeeping on site at 27 emergency foster care shelters throughout Tennessee.

Relocating the Special Needs Family -
A Look at Education Systems in the US and Abroad
by Margaret Edquist Stanzler The US has generous educational policies for children with disabilities. Are foreign national families eligible to use these services? Can American families can find comparable services when relocating abroad? This article examines both scenarios. An international transfer can be a stressful event for a family, particularly if that family includes a child with special educational or medical needs. American families contemplating an overseas move should be aware of the problems they may face in finding a program that meets their child's special educational and medical needs, and even whether these needs may preclude a working visa for the breadwinner. Conversely, foreign national families relocating to the US with special needs children need to know how to access our special education programs and whether their child is eligible to use these programs at public expense.
Initial considerations
The first question that a US family headed overseas must consider is whether the child will even be allowed to join the family on assignment. In some countries, particularly those with national health systems, a sizable medical record can bar a family member from getting a long-stay visa based on statistically computed presumed costs to the health department. The family also must consider whether their child will be able to get an adequate education in a foreign country, either in a private or public school.

29. Ratwik, Roszak & Maloney - Special Education Newsletter
forbid public schools from providing direct special education to disabled studentsin of the Constitution and the minnesota regulation invites court
by Paul C. Ratwik How should a school district respond when a parent requests special education services for a disabled child who attends a private religious school? Asked in a more fundamental way, when does the constitutional prohibition on state-sponsored religion override the individual's right to a free appropriate education? The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act ("IDEA") guarantees all children with disabilities a free appropriate public education ("FAPE"). State and local educational authorities are responsible for implementing IDEA and providing a FAPE to disabled students. Public schools bear a clear responsibility to provide special education and related services for their students, even when the school district places those students in a private school. What is far less clear is the scope of a school district's obligation to provide special education and related services to students who have been placed in private sectarian schools by their parents. The fundamental questionhow does the state balance the entitlement of disabled children against the First Amendment's prohibition on state support of religionhas raised a firestorm of legal controversy that has swept through the federal courts and is leading directly to the U.S. Supreme Court. If school districts are required to provide the full range of special education and related services to every private sectarian school student in that student's school, traditional notions about the strict separation between public and private religious schools must be reconsidered. For example, if school districts are required to provide direct on-site services, a school district's paraprofessional aide may be required to help a cognitively disabled child understand interpretations of the Bible or the Koran.

Jesse Ventura on Education
Focus on results and standards
Three tough questions were posed by the new Governor:
  • How do we get the bang for our buck on education spending (developing a formula that is based on results, not micro-management at the classroom level)
  • What is the state’s role with clearly spelling out standards and then putting accountability at each level, starting with parents and including local districts (governance and accountability) and,
  • How can we promote the use of what we already know we should do, but too often don’t do (using best practices across disciplines to better align K-12 and human services, health, housing, transit, and other state investments)? The goal is simply this: to ensure the best public education for every child in Minnesota, and an optimal representative governance structure that delivers results. Source: The Big Plan: Healthy, Vital Communities Dec 10, 2000
    Minnesota’s accessible, vast network of opportunities for continuing informal and formal higher education is the envy of the nation. In the year 2000, a vast majority of Minnesotans will have unlimited access to learning options via the Internet. Employers struggling to find and retain qualified workers in a time of full employment value and invest in job training more than ever before. Changing demographics are provoking new demands for learning among people for whom English is not a first language, for senior citizens, and for mid-career professionals seeking new challenges in work and life. The next questions relate to maintaining the infrastructure, making tough decisions to place programs where they are actually needed to serve populations, and surfing the wave of change that technologies like CD-ROM, interactive videodisk, and the Internet provide.

    While President Clinton calls for 3,000 charter schools by decade's end, his administration's lawyer-activists at the U.S. Education Department are doing all they can to savage these independent public schools of choice, now numbering around 700 nationally. First blood was drawn recently by Norma Cantu, a veteran of the Mexican-American Legal Defense Fund and now head of the Education Department's Office of Civil Rights (OCR). (Cantu's mischief was last exposed in these pages by David Tell on 8/11/97: "Norma Cantu's Cant.") Last month, Cantu's Boston office handed down two precedent-setting and outrageous rulings against the Boston Renaissance Charter School in response to allegations of discrimination by the school against a fifth-grade girl and a first-grade boy with "attention deficit disorder." Both youngsters are African-American. Here are the facts: The Boston Renaissance School, which is managed by the for-profit Edison Project on behalf of the non-profit community group that obtained a charter from the state in 1995, enrolls over a thousand students in grades K-8. It's one of the country's largest and most celebrated charter schools. Three-quarters of its students are minority; 12 percent are disabled.

    St. Cloud, Minnesota
    District 742 in St. Cloud, Minnesota, has been receiving ongoing training and technical assistance from the Safe and Drug Free Schools Project at CAREI since 1994. The goal originally was to assess Drug Free Schools programming. Today all buildings are implementing the official Student Assistance process with staff teams at every building. The team is the first point of referral for all students for any need or service. Resilience/health realization has been adopted as the operational philosophy for all teams. Student capacity for well-being is emphasized and labeling discouraged. The District has recently developed its new strategic plan. The first bold initiative calls for a district paradigm shift from focusing on youth the innate strengths and capacity of students for health and well-being. Two pilot training programs are underway with North Junior High and the Early Childhood Program. Community agencies and organizations are also involved. Those of us that have been around for a long time, have seen initiatives come and go and we often wonder how they relate to the big picture of educational improvement. Resilience/health realization definitely does. We are using it to build on past efforts to better meet student needs.

    by Dianne Hales
    Something major is happening in American education: Children with disabilities are no longer out of sight.
    Over the past five years increasing numbers of students with physical and emotional disabilities have been brought out of separate schools and special-education classes and into mainstream classrooms. The reason? New federal laws that have embraced the policy of inclusion.
    This controversial educational approach assumes that all children, regardless of physical, emotional, or academic ability, can and should learn together in the same classroom. Inclusionary schools assign students a grade based solely on their chronological age; any child who also requires the services of special-education teachers can then get most of those services in the classroom.
    The first part of this series, "A Place for Amber" looked at the effects of inclusion on children with disabilities, and found that many educators and parents give it high marks. But there is another side to the equation: inclusion's effect on children who are not disabled. In this second and concluding part of Moving Into the Mainstream, we look at what is known about students who share classrooms with youngsters with special needs.
