Summary: Under the provisions of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEIA), the IDEA Federal Regulations, and the Regulations Governing Special Education Programs for Children with Disabilities in Virginia, local educational agencies are required to submit an annual plan and application for providing special education and related services to children with disabilities in order to secure Federal funds. Albemarle County Public Schools must ensure that its policies and procedures are consistent with the Regulations Governing Special Education Programs in Virginia, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act and corresponding Federal Regulations. The Annual Plan consist of the following components:

1. The Annual Plan document, that includes the applications for Section 611 Flow-Through Grant (K-12) and the Section 619 Early Childhood Special Education (PK) Grant.

2. The Part B Set Aside Calculation and Plan is included. It outlines how a portion of the Federal funding was calculated, developed with consultation from private schools and parents and the resulting implementation plan. These funds are used to support children eligible for special education services that are unilaterally placed by their parents in home or private school programs located in Albemarle County.

The approved version of the Annual Plan is expected to be submitted to the Virginia Department of Education on or before May 11, 2018.

This plan was reviewed, as required by Virginia Regulations, by the Special Education Advisory Committee on March 13, 2018.
