Summary: Under the provisions of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEIA), the IDEA Federal Regulations, and the Regulations Governing Special Education Programs for Children with Disabilities in Virginia, local educational agencies are required to submit an annual plan and application for providing special education and related services to children with disabilities. Albemarle County Public Schools must ensure that its policies and procedures are consistent with the Regulations Governing Special Education Programs in Virginia, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act and corresponding Federal Regulations.

The Annual Plan consist of the following components:

1. The Annual Plan document includes the applications for Section 611 Flow-Through Grant and the Section 619 Preschool Grant.

2. The Part B Set Aside Calculation outlines how a portion of the Federal funding was calculated, developed with consultation from private schools and parents and the resulting plan. These funds are used to support children eligible for special education services that are unilaterally placed by their parents in home or private school programs located in Albemarle County.

As a condition of receiving the 2017-18 grant award, assurances that Albemarle County Schools will be in compliance with IDEA are required. The assurance statements are included in the proposed Annual Plan. The approved version will be submitted to the Virginia Department of Education.

This plan was reviewed, as required by Virginia Regulations, by the Special Education Advisory Committee on March 14, 2017.

Although special education policies and procedures were reviewed by the Director of Special Education for Albemarle County as part of this process, they are not included in this agenda item as there were no changes proposed.
Funding: This is a Federal Flow Through grant award.
Recommendation: Receive the 2017-18 Albemarle County Special Education Annual Plan for information.
