Designing and implementing a special education manual for students with exceptionalities: policies and procedures for referral, assessment, classroom practices, and staffing for Children's Community Charter School

The teachers, administrators, and staff of Children’s Community Charter
 School believe in the equal worth and dignity of all students and are committed to
 educate all students to their maximum potential. The mission of the my thesis project and
 position as Director of Special Programs is to provide leadership, guidance, and support
 to the school community in order to maximize learning for all students within an
 inclusive environment so that each student will contribute to and benefit from our diverse
 society. The purpose of the Special Education Policies and Procedures Manual is to assist
 school personnel in understanding and practicing consistent policies and procedures that are aligned with Federal, State, and Charter School philosophies and laws. CCCS is
 committed to ensure compliance with such policies and procedures. It is expected that
 school personnel will serve students with disabilities and their families in a manner
 consistent with this manual. This manual of policies and procedures will provide the user
 with the concepts and framework needed in understanding how to implement special
 education policies and procedures. It is designed to be used as:
 • a structured process for implementing special education policies.
 • an incorporated, required, piece of our Charter By-Laws as an independent LEA.
 • a reference for answering questions.
 • a staff development tool.
 • a source for forms, timelines, and miscellaneous related resources for support and assistance when working within the special education process as well as Section 504, The Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
