Covering all bases

This week’s FREE tool is a checklist to help charter school decision makers contract outside providers for special education services. Like traditional public schools, charter schools may find it necessary to hire outside professionals in some instances. This can occur when students need only intermittent support or when a school lacks the capacity to hire specialized teachers for low-incidence disabilities. The checklist includes questions to help identify needs and resources and questions regarding the contracting process. It comes from “Charting the Course: Special Education in Charter Schools,” a first-of-its-kind guide to the essential elements of providing special education services in a charter school environment.
