Title IX Regulation Core Concept“No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”
Screening and Evaluation of school-aged students who may require the provision of special education programs and services.
City Charter High School uses the following identification activities on an on-going basis for locating, identifying, and evaluating the needs of school-aged students who may require the provision of special education programs and services.
City Charter High School has a system to collect and maintain data on child identification activities. Parents with concerns regarding their child may contact the school at any time to request an evaluation of their child that may result in a special education determination. All communication with parents will be in English or the family’s native language.
Parents are very important participants in the special education process.
They know their child better than anyone else and have valuable information to contribute about the kinds of programs and services that are needed for their child’s success in school. To ensure the rights of children with a disability, additional laws have been made. In this guide we also use the term “rules.” Sometimes these rules can be confusing to parents. They may be written in language that is difficult to understand. This booklet has been written to explain these rules so parents will feel comfortable and can better participate in the educational decision-making process for their child. The chapters that follow address questions that parents may have about special education as it relates to their child who is thought to have, or may have, a disability.
Chapter One focuses on how a child’s need for special education is determined.
Chapter Two explains how a special education program plan is developed and the kinds of information it must include.
Chapter Three deals with the responsibilities that a school district has to a child who is eligible for special education services and the child’s parents.
Chapter Four outlines the actions that parents can take if they disagree with school officials about their child’s education program.
