RE: Credits for Graduation for SAU-placed Children and State Agency Clients in Special Purpose Private Schools
Background: During the adoption of Me. Dept. of Ed. Reg. Chapter 101, Maine Unified Special Education Regulations Birth to Age Twenty, standards for special purpose private schools were developed and are being implemented through the school approval and monitoring process. The standards can be found in Chapter 101, XII.2
All special purpose private schools are required to align their curriculum with the Maine Learning Results. Additionally, Sections IV. 4 (D) (4) and (5) and (E) (5) require credit assessment of high school children who are state agency clients or highly mobile children.
