The Central York School District's Special Education Plan is an action plan that describes the local Board of School Director's commitment to ensure that a quality education will be provided to each of its students with a disability eligible for special education. The content of the special education plan describes the special education program and services that are provided within a school district and those special education programs and services which are accessed by the school district from outside the school district's geographical boundaries.
Each school district shall develop a special education plan aligned with the strategic plan of the school district under § 4.13 (relating to strategic plans). The special education plan shall be developed every 3 years consistent with the 3-year review cycle of the strategic plan of the school district. The Secretary will prescribe the format, content, and time for submission of the special education plan. (§14.104(a)). A special education plan reflects ongoing programs and services and incorporates anticipated changes in programming as a result of corrective action generated by the cyclical monitoring and improvement planning and other factors. An important component of the submission process is that each district must have its plan available for public review for 28 days prior to the Pennsylvania Department of Education’s July 31, 2022 deadline.
The 28-day public review and comment period begins on June 23, 2022. A draft of the plan has been posted online below. A paper copy is available at the Educational Service Center for public review during normal office hours.
We encourage residents to submit any comments and questions via email by Friday, July 22, 2022, to firstname.lastname@example.org. A final version of the Special Education Plan will be submitted to the Board of School Directors for formal approval at the Central York School District’s School Board Meeting on Monday, July 18, 2022, at 6:30 PM.
