How do private and charter schools compare to public schools when it comes to accepting and meeting the needs of special needs students? from what I hear, private and charter schools are not legally bound to meet the needs of special needs students.

Our charter school is legally bound to provide resource services based on individual student needs. We are a public school and belong to our local school district. We operate in full accordance with IDEA exactly like any of the neighborhood public schools. I am supervised by and held accountable to all the same standards as any other special education teacher in the district.

If anything we are more under a microscope. Our charter may not be renewed if our sped students don't show growth.

No, not our charter school. Maybe others. I don’t know.

Our private and charter schools don't accept kiddos with special needs, especially my population - multiple disabilities. It's all about test scores!

IDEA is federal law so I’m just guessing that nobody has bothered to sue them yet.

My daughter is special needs and goes to a charter school. They have met her needs completely. They have gone above and beyond to make sure that she is accommodated. But that is just my personal experience.

Some yes, we have an open lottery

I think our local one has a lottery as well. However, it is my understanding that there is a review process and that the school can reject students based upon grade criteria, etc. Maybe there's some "weeding out" in that process, sadly.
Is that also a part of your lottery process?

In the area I teach in, the private and charter schools refer students to their neighboring public schools for evaluations, and if they qualify for services, the public school has to write the IEP and provide services in qualifying areas. If the charter/private school keeps the referred student, they are required to meet accommodations as outlined in the student's IEP. The funding stays with the charter/private school even when the public school supplies the SPED services.

Anyone consider leaving sped for general ed?

Iowa uses the Internet for IEP progress monitoring data collection. In addition to collecting our data, we are required (or at least supposed to...) put our data into the computer every two weeks. The putting it into the computer in a timely fashion is where almost every teacher in our building struggles. I use a paper "spreadsheet" to see progress or lack thereof, but does anyone have tips for an easy process to input data into the doggone computer every two weeks?

I’m a SPED Resource/Inclusion Teacher which I really love. I really like working with the Gen Ed teachers maybe because my background is Gen Ed. I’m noticing many SPED team members go straight to the principal if they have an issue with a Gen Ed teacher instead of going to the teacher directly. Is this the norm now? What happened to SPED working with Gen Ed? Maybe I’m old school, but this seems so wrong to me. Thoughts?

Hello! I'm pretty new to special education, and could use some advice.
The other day I was with a high school class, and a student interrupted my welcome song (I teach music) by shouting "Stop, that's terrible!" and wheeling over to physically take my hands off the keyboard.
I have to admit, I was rather taken aback. I'm used to yelling and interruption, but not being usurped at the keyboard.
I can put in a comment how I responded; however, I'd most like to know, What would you have said/done?

Any math programs out there that you are finding to be successful when used with students in grades 4-6 who perform at an instructional level of 1st grade?
