KPBSD Policy Manual

BP 6172

Instruction
SPECIAL EDUCATION

The School Board desires children with and without disabilities to share an interactive educational environment which nurtures understanding, cooperation and mutual respect. 

A student’s IEP team shall determine the content of the student's individualized educational program (IEP) and make placement decisions for the least restrictive environment that is educationally appropriate.

4 AAC 52.590 requires the District to establish written procedures for the identification of children in need of a surrogate parent and for the appointment and removal of surrogate parents.  AS 14.30.272 requires the District to inform parents/guardians of children with disabilities of the procedural safeguards provided by law.  4 AAC 52.190 requires written notice before initiating or changing a child's identification, evaluation or placement and when refusing a parent's request to initiate or change a child's identification, evaluation or placement.

The Superintendent shall establish written procedures required by law and shall ensure District compliance with procedural safeguards, including appropriate notices to parents/guardians established by state and federal laws and regulations.

4 AAC 52.115 requires evaluation and placement within 90 calendar days of obtaining parental consent for evaluation. However, completion of an individualized education plan must occur within 30 days after determining a child's eligibility.

Services will be provided in accordance with a student's IEP once parental consent or administrative or judicial proceedings authorize the provision of special education and related services.
