Hearing on special-ed regulations
District officials will hold a hearing Thursday night on proposed new rules to regulate the quality and cost of private schools where some special education students are enrolled at public expense. The hearing will be held 6 to 8 p.m. in the D.C. State Board of Education chambers at 441 4th St. N.W.
If you want to testify, contact Gregory Ellis at 202-741-0271 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 5 p.m. Wednesday. If you don't register in advance, you can still testify on a first-come-first-served basis. Each individual will be limited to five minutes. If you represent an organization, you get seven.
A couple of points got garbled in Friday's posting about the new rules. There are 119 students being served in schools outside D.C., Maryland and Virginia. Some are in local residential facilities. And the public comment period is 30 days, not 45. It ends July 19.
