Champions Thrives in Schools
For 10 years, the Learning for Life Champions program has been thriving in Missouri's St. Joseph School District. Over 200 special-needs students in kindergarten through eighth grade at 13 schools currently benefit from Champions, which equips mentally disabled children with self-concept, personal/social, and life skills. Its curriculum has also been integrated at the nearby Kickapoo Indian Reservation. Students "are given the opportunity to achieve at high levels," according to St. Joseph Superintendent Dan Colgan. "They both learn in the classroom and experience through practical application." To ensure a direct correlation to classroom curriculum, teachers help plan activities, which include outdoor cooking, art, nature hikes, races, and first-aid skills. The spring day camp culminates in an awards ceremony honoring each student for Champions program completion for that school year. "Parents also attend the ceremony, and you can see the pride in their eyes when their child receives recognition," reports Learning for Life coordinator Mike Moseman. The ceremony also gives the students, who are often overlooked in the mainstream, a tremendous sense of accomplishment. The activity-oriented approach of the day camps continues throughout the rest of the school year as well. Students perform community service like helping to clean school campuses. Helen King, special education teacher at Hyde Elementary School, also takes her class to the mall and restaurants to practice proper public behavior. "These life skills help special-needs students fit in, which is very important to them."

In Massachusetts, controversy continues over a proposal to record students' performance on the state graduation exam on high school transcripts. Following stiff opposition to the measure, Education Commissioner David P. Driscoll withdrew the proposal to list students' achievement levels on the Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS). Opponents contended that such notations would be particularly unfair to African American and Hispanic students in inner cities, potentially curtailing their opportunities for post-secondary education. Nevertheless, James A. Peyser, Chairman of the State Board of Education, indicated that the board may consider the option of noting a "competency determination" on a student's transcript next fall. The notation would be based on passage of the English and math portions of the MCAS.

Do That
Positive Behavioral Support Changes Language, Learning of School Discipline
The kids at Metzger Elementary were, in the words of the district psychologist, "mixing it up" at recess. With heightened sensitivity to the potential for violence to escalate, teachers were worried. But rather than punish the children’s aggressive behavior by cutting off this much-anticipated break in the day, the school’s Effective Behavioral Support (EBS) team took a more proactive approach.
The team dispatched its members on an action research project. They observed several recesses to learn firsthand what was going on. They found a marked decline in aggressive play when the school’s instructional assistants—rather than teachers—were overseeing recess. The reason? Instructional aides had been trained in "active supervision," while regular classroom teachers had not. The response? The EBS team organized a training session where the assistants could share what they knew with the teachers. This example of educators in the Tigard-Tualatin School District in Oregon recognizing a discipline problem, confronting it, then working together to solve it is at the center of a nationwide trend toward "positive behavioral intervention" or "positive behavioral support." Under this frameworkdifferent from "behavior modification" or more traditional disciplinary approaches that rely on rules, infractions and punishmentsregular and special educators, specialists like counselors and psychologists, and principals are cooperating to teach students self-management skills while altering some school practices to encourage good behavior.

At least from my experience, independent advocacy groups can and will accomplish more on a local and state level than national organizations or organizations formed through state and federal grant mechanisms. National organizations such as COPAA will be strengthened through well organized and well informed independent state organizations.
Kansas is a particularly tough state on disabled children; especially children with autism. Having been involved in a case there for almost a year, I read with interest your editorials and other comments regarding the due process hearing system in your state. Kansas, though, is not unique. Florida is equally insidious. States such as these perpetrate discrimination simply by maintaining the status quo through the sloggy due process systems. That is, Hearing Officers, Judges, and yes - school
district defense firms - collectively maintain a system that "keeps those children in their proper place in society." The courts and the administrative Hearing Officers maintain the status quo through judicial and quasi judicial passivity. Perhaps the most effective form of judicial passivity is the circumvention of their responsibilities by the courts' near sighted reliance on their own doctricanal boundaries and categories(precedent, stare decisis, etc) to resolve cases.

Emergency Preparedness
General Manager: Harold Ream Owned and controlled by those we serve.... Are you ready to handle an emergency? From natural disasters to home accidents, it pays to be prepared. B eing prepared means having a written plan that includes training and practice. Luckily, that's easier than you may think. Here are a few examples of emergencies for you to consider:
  • House fire Wild land fire Flooding Tornado Power outage Winter storm Earthquake Intruder School emergency Work emergency Large chemical spills near your neighborhood
These simple steps can put you and your family on the road to emergency preparedness.
  • Know your local emergency phone numbers. Not all areas use 911 Know your neighborhood. Your local emergency management office or American Red Cross chapter can advise you as to disasters most commonly found in your region. Ask these questions:
      What types of disasters are most common for my neighborhood? What is the best way to prepare for those events? Is there a warning signal in my neighborhood? What does it sound like?

Subcommittee on Education Reform
Committee on Education and the Workforce
United States House of Representatives April 18, 2002
Thank you Chairman Boehner and members of the committee for this opportunity to discuss the most important federal education law, the Individuals with Disabilities education act, IDEA. I am John Lawrence, the Superintendent of the Troy Missouri Public schools. I am completing my 18th year as superintendent in Troy, which is unusual in this day of rapid voluntary and involuntary turnover in the superintendency. I was also recently elected president elect of AASA, which is why I am here today representing AASA members across the country. Troy is a growing school district which used to be thought of as far outside of St. Louis, but now is part of the greater metropolitan area. Like most of the country the people of Troy are very supportive of their public schools. The support comes with very high expectations to deliver a quality education to all children. Like the parents of disabled children everywhere, the parents of disabled students in Troy demand and we provide excellent services for disabled students. I would like to begin with some general observations that we at AASA have gathered over the past two years, as we prepared for the reauthorization. First the thing that stands out most for me after 28 years in public education is that we have over six million children receiving services usually in the general classroom who are succeeding in every sense of the word. Students who were once warehoused in state schools are graduating from high school and going on to college or training for rewarding careers in fields that do not require a bachelors degree.

TESTIMONY FOR THE SENATE FINANCE COMMITTEE HEARING ON MEDICAID FUNDING FOR SCHOOL BASED HEALTH SERVICES GREGORY A. VADNER DIRECTOR DIVISION OF MEDICAL SERVICES DEPARTMENT OF SOCIAL SERVICES STATE OF MISSOURI JUNE 17, 1999 Mr. Chairman, Members of the Committee: Thank you for inviting me to appear before you today. I am the director of the Missouri Medicaid Program, and I am here in that capacity. We believe school based services are an important asset to ensuring children's access to health care services. These services are a critical component of children's readiness to learn, especially in the case of children with special health care needs. The importance of this issue has recently been highlighted by four developments:
  • •Recent efforts by states to increase their ability to capture allowable Medicaid funding for school based health care services, particularly through bundling groups of services for the purpose of rate setting and the administrative efficiencies this brings; a bundled rate is merely the setting of an average per child cost of serving disabled children; •Accompanying scrutiny by stakeholders such as yourself concerning these efforts to make sure program integrity is maintained;
