Secretary's Conference on Educational Technology March 1995
Schools lag behind workplaces, leisure places, and other realms of life in their access to new information technologies. Moreover, current technologies are not equitably distributed among different kinds of schools, special groups of students, or households. Ensuring equitable access to technology is the first and most obvious step toward building a challenging learning environment. Seven breakout sessions dealt with these topics. (note) Key issues General Access of Schools to Technology
Equitable Access for Urban, Rural, and Disadvantaged Schools

Equitable Access for Students with Special Needs

Parent, Family, and Community Access
A. General Access of Schools to Technology
"We are working as hard as we can to make sure that schools have access to the growing number of resources that are out there." -Linda Roberts The schools represented at the conference enjoy an atypical degree of access to technologies, said Jerry Malitz of the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) in a breakout session. Most schools, for example, do not have access to telecommunications technologies. NCES found that while 35 percent of schools had some form of Internet access, only three percent provided access in classrooms and other instructional areas. And within this small subset of schools, only two percent of teachers, four percent of students, and 11 percent of administrators used wide area networks to a large extent.

The President
The White House
Washington, D.C. 20500 Dear Mr. President: The National Council on Disability is pleased to submit to you this report entitled, Improving the Implementation of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act: Making Schools Work for All of America's Children . This report presents the results of an extensive research process regarding progress in the implementation of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) over the past 20 years and recommendations for improving the implementation of IDEA as Congress begins to consider its reauthorization. Nearly 400 witnesses (the vast majority of whom were parents of children with disabilities, students with disabilities themselves, and adults with disabilities) contributed their views regarding the reauthorization of IDEA at 10 regional hearings, sharing their experiences with IDEA to date and their hopes for its future. We believe that their voices should be central to any discussion of special education policy and that the adoption of the recommendations detailed in this report would result in a markedly improved special education service delivery system.

Human Rights Hearing Officer Upholds Termination of Disabled Teacher
by Catherine M. Swift, Attorney at Law, Gough, Shanahan, Johnson and Waterman A case recently decided by the Montana Human Rights Commission's Hearing Officer, Terry Spear, addresses some of these issues. In that case, Browning Public Schools teacher Russell Pannoni asserted the disability of depression in the fall of 1998, commencing a two year progression of demands and accommodations, absences and returns to work, and medical evaluations and opinions, which ended in Pannoni's termination on May 23, 2000. The recent decision may provide some guidance to others facing similar situations. Pannoni was a tenured middle school teacher with a record of absenteeism. The record shows him to have been absent more than his contracted 14 days of personal and sick leave in 8 of his last 11 years of employment, including 23 absences in FY1998, 87 absences in FY1999 and 137 absences in FY2000. He asserted that his absences were the result of his depression and that any disciplinary action based on his depression amounted to disability discrimination or retaliation. The district asserted that teacher presence is an essential job function which the employee must be capable of performing in order to qualify for the protection of the law and that the district in any event reasonably accommodated Pannoni.

Inclusion and Inclusion Practices
Inclusive education offers something for all. Kids with disabilities are able to be with their peers, friendships can develop that carry over to the neighborhood. In some cases, for those with severe disabilities, the inclusion practice is much harder. Perhaps with a child who has more challenges, the best initial inclusive setting may involve just a lunch time activity. Segregating our children with disabilities has taken them out of the mainstream and actually made people stare at them more. They aren't kids who are seen playing everyday in the yards with classmates. Often classmates are miles away, in another city. The only socialization that can take place is over the phone or if someone can drive you over to visit. By keeping our kids in their neighborhood school, including them into the school, they tend to blend more easily and are more easily accepted. Here are several sites that offer inclusive practices and insights. A Consensus Model for Including Students with Disabilities into the Regular Classroom A School Zone - Inclusion, Accommodation, Transition, and Vocational Page Academy for Educational Development -AED links regional centers for special education around the United States with each other and with the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP), providing information, technical assistance, and coordination to assist them in providing technical assistance to state education agencies.
