The Division of Exceptional Learners helps us to ensure that students eligible for special education services are offered a free appropriate public education in the least restrictive environment. They also ensure "that Indiana is in compliance with the federal Individuals With Disabilities Education Act, through monitoring of special education programs, oversight of community and residential programs, provision of mediation and due process rights, and sound fiscal management."
Indiana has established world-class Academic Standards in English/language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. These standards outline what students should know and be able to do at each grade level. Student's goals and objectives are based on these standards as appropriate. Indiana is also a participant in the Common Core State Standards Initiative.
A variety of statewide assessments are used to evaluate student's academic achievements and skills. The assessments vary depending on the student's grade level and abilities.
The Indiana IEP (IIEP) is an online Individual Education Plan (IEP) development tool.
Schools may seek reimbursement from Medicaid for certain assessments and therapy provided by the school. Recovered amounts do not affect amounts that can be billed by other agencies. The Co-op uses PCG to apply for this reimbursement on behalf of the schools.
The PATINS Project is a state-wide technical assistance network for the provision of assistive/accessible technology for assisting local educational agencies in the utilization and creation of accessible learning environments and instructional materials. Teachers may request materials for trial use from their Lending Library.
