ANNUAL STATE APPLICATION FOR FISCAL YEAR 2005 OSPI completed its annual state application under Part B of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act as Amended in 2004 for Federal Fiscal Year 2005. As part of the submission process, the US Department of Education Office of Special Education Program (OSEP) requires that we publish the application for at least 60 days and accept public comment for at least 30 days. After posting and receiving comments on the application, OSPI will: (1) inform OSEP if there are any changes resulting from the 30-day comment period and (2) inform OSEP when the 60 days of public availability is completed. This application is broken into three sections: Section I contains the submission statement. Section II contains assurances regarding the eligibility requirements for Public Law 108-446 (IDEA 2004) and it contains certifications regarding compliance with IDEA 2004 and other federal laws governing federal programs. Please note, some of the assurances are currently effective and some assurances include a date for completion of changes by June 30, 2006. This is because our rule making process in this state will begin after the USDOE finalizes regulations that implement IDEA 2004.

Washington, DC, February 17, 2004 The Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) announces the members of its newly created Task Force on Special Education. This task force has been assembled in an effort to better understand the implications of federal regulations and other legislation aimed at helping students with disabilities learn to their potential, namely the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA) and No Child Left Behind (NCLB). “Educators in every state in our nation want to improve the learning outcomes for student with disabilities,” said Terry Bergeson, Washington State’s Superintendent of Public Instruction and chair of the CCSSO Task Force. “We must take advantage of this opportunity to move away from our heavy emphasis on compliance to a stronger focus on higher learning and achievement levels for all students with special needs.”

Finally Released
On March 12, 1999, the US Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) released the final federal regulations for the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) Amendments of 1997. School system personnel and parents have been anxiously awaiting the final regulations since the release of the "draft" regulations in October 1997 in hopes that the final document would provide further guidance and stop the debate about controversial sections of the law, for example, the discipline of students with disabilities. Also, the NC Department of Public Instruction, Exceptional Children Division could not finish revising the state PROCEDURES Governing Programs and Services for Children with Special Needs without the final federal regulations. The regulations of most interest to families are those related to Part B of IDEA. The following pages of this Special Edition NEWS LINE only provide an overview of the changes made between the "draft" and the final regulations.

Email page Print view When managing hazardous wastes, it's important to understand the federal and state laws and regulations that govern the disposal process from cradle to grave. Regulations from other topics of environmental compliance also direct management of hazardous materials and wastes, such as oil recycling, clean air, clean water and special rules for individual wastes (for example batteries and pesticide legislation). This section provides an overview of regulations and government agencies that govern hazardous waste management and related topics. Source: Local Hazardous Waste Management Program.

Resource Conservation and Recovery Act
The primary federal legislation addressing solid and hazardous waste management is the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) passed in 1976. It provides a comprehensive framework for managing solid and hazardous waste with the intent of eliminating or minimizing public health threats and contamination caused by these wastes. RCRA was modified with the passage of the Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments (HSWA) in 1984. An important component of HSWA was a mandate to revise the Criteria for Classification of Solid Waste Disposal Facilities and Practices which established minimum technical standards for design and operation of solid waste facilities. This mandate arose, in part, as a result of concerns about the disposal of unregulated quantities of hazardous waste at municipal landfills.

§126-16-1. General.
1.1. Purpose: The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act Amendments of 1997, Public Law 105-17, herein after referred to as IDEA 97, requires that the State set forth policies and procedures to assure that there is a goal of providing full educational opportunity to all students with disabilities between birth and 21 years of age. The State of West Virginia affirms the goal to provide full educational opportunities by 2010 for all students with disabilities, aged birth through 21, residing within its jurisdiction. The state works toward the realization of this goal through the implementation of, and compliance with, IDEA 97, and any subsequent reauthorization, state regulations and policies and the implementation of the West Virginia Continuous Improvement and Focused Monitoring System. 1.2. Scope: These regulations apply to preschool, early childhood, middle childhood, adolescent and adult students whose educational programs require special education and related services. These regulations apply to three year olds, as of their third birth date, through five year olds with disabilities and those who are between the ages of five and 21. Rights under these regulations cease to apply at the end of the school year in which the student turns 21 years of age, that is, the year in which the student is 21 years of age prior to September 1 unless the student has met graduation requirements as specified by the Individualized Education Program and within the state/local policy pertaining to graduation requirements.

Best and worst about being a school psychologists - comments from school psychologists " The best part is simply working with kids and hopefully being able to provide intervention or services that help them. The worst parts are the paperwork and the difficulty of convincing certain teachers (usually those who have been teaching for 20+ years) that you know what you are talking about" "The best thing is working with children, teachers, parents and other school personnel. The worst part is all of the paperwork!!" "The best part is that I am in a position to help make lifelong, significant changes in children's lives, which will hopefully have a positive impact. I love coordinating information between the student, parents and school personnel. I also love working with the children and hearing what insights they have. The worst part is all of the paperwork. With having state report formats, there is little opportunity for individuality in report-writing, which I do not like!"
"The best thing is working with children who continue to teach me something new everyday. I am reminded, daily, that thinking is a developmental process that is as individual as a fingerprint. I believe school psychologists serve children best when we advocate for their needs and celebrate their potential. The worst thing is bearing in mind all the regulations that one must consider when writing a report about a comprehensive evaluation. I reserve time in my schedule to read to kindergarten classes on days when I know I will be writing reports. It is too mind numbing if I spend the entire day doing dictation or writing"

    September 23, 1999. On behalf of its 430,000 members, NYSUT is pleased to submit this testimony for consideration by the Board of Regents and State Education Department in finalizing changes to Part 200 of the Regulations of the Commissioner of Education. NYSUT, working with its national affiliate, the American Federation of Teachers, was actively involved in advocating for the many changes included in the 1997 amendments to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. NYSUT is a strong supporter of raising learning expectations for students with disabilities and believes that these students should have access to the general education curriculum, to the extent appropriate, regardless of the student's educational placement. NYSUT advocated that general education teachers should have a greater role in making decisions about a student's educational program. In addition, all appropriate teachers and related services providers must have in their hands timely information about the needs of students in their classes and the programs and supports to be provided to them
