Students with Disabilities can Enroll in Advanced Classes, ED Office Says
The Department of Education sent a letter to school districts across the nation reminding administrators that students with disabilities can participate in advanced classes without giving up their special education accommodations.
Tuesday January 15th - 3:10pm
The office for civil rights (OCR) of the Department of Education issued a letter to school districts stating that students with disabilities can enroll in advanced classes without having to surrender special education services they receive under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).
Jim Bradshaw, the Department's spokesperson, said that the letter was a response to informal questions and complaints. The OCR added that some schools and districts were not allowing students with disabilities to enroll in accelerated classes, or were forcing them to give up their special education accommodations in order to do so.
The letter attempts to make sure that this will not continue, by stating that any aids or other services that a school provides for a student in a regular education classroom must also be provided in an advanced classroom.
