Full Educational Opportunity - Kings County Office of Education

Kings County
Special Education Local Plan Area
Steps are taken, including placement of classes, to ensure that students with
disabilities participate in academic, nonacademic and extracurricular services and
activities to promote maximum interaction with the general school population.
Children with disabilities are educated with children who are not disabled.
Placement in special classes, separate schooling, or other removal of children with
disabilities from the regular educational environment occurs only when the nature
or severity of the disability of a child is such that education in regular classes with
the use of supplementary aids and services cannot be achieved satisfactorily.
The child is not removed from age appropriate, regular classrooms solely because
of needed modifications in the general curriculum.
In providing or arranging for the provision of nonacademic and extracurricular
services and activities, including meals, recess periods, and the services and other
nonacademic activities specified in federal regulations LEA ensures that each child
with a disability participates with nondisabled children in those services and
activities to the maximum extent appropriate to the needs of that child.
Transportation is available when required for students with disabilities, as
determined by IEP teams.
