district will receive an allocation of exceptional student teacher units for
the next school session by April 5 of the current year. The allocation will be
based on the numbers of students being served during the current year and in
line with the minimum/maximum numbers for exceptional student programs as
outlined in State regulations. In the event that the total allocation is more
than the number of units approved by the Legislature, districts will be
notified of this deficit.
District exceptional student programs will be approved by December 15 of the
current year. Approval will be based on State regulations covering teacher
certification standards, justification of separate facilities, justification of
EMR resourcing, justification of unusual combinations of students, and the
superintendent's assurance of compliance with regulations.
3. Allocations of exceptional student teacher
units based on the previous year's numbers may be increased if the district can
show the need by October 15 of the current year.
