Non-Public Schools in MI

MICHIGAN DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION
NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

The Michigan Department of Education, Office of Special Education and
Early Intervention Services will conduct public hearings to receive
comment on the following proposed administrative rules and documents:

Special Education Programs and Services Administrative Rules
(2009-043ED)
Criteria for Specific Learning Disabilities
Nonpublic Services Plan

The rules are promulgated by the authority conferred on the
superintendent of public instruction by sections 1701 and 1703 of 1976
PA 451, MCL 380.1701 and MCL 380.1703, and Executive Reorganization
Order Nos. 1996-6 and 1996-7, MCL 388.993 and MCL 388.994. The
proposed changes will bring the administrative rules into alignment
with the reauthorized Individuals with Disabilities Education Act and
update outdated language.

In addition, the Michigan Department of Energy, Labor and Economic
Growth, State Office of Administrative Hearings and Rules will conduct
public hearings to receive public comments on the following proposed
administrative rule:

Due Process Procedures for Special Education (2009-049ED)

The rule is promulgated by authority conferred on the State Office of

451, MCL 380.1701 and 380.1703, and Executive Order 2005-1, MCL
445.2021. Rule 340.1883(3) contains an incorrect rule reference. The
current subrule references Rule 340.1881, a rule that was rescinded in
2005. Hence, this subrule must be amended to reflect the correct
reference (R 340.1724f).

The proposed rules are accessible on the Michigan Department of
Education, Office of Special Education and Early Intervention Services
Web site at www.michigan.gov/ose-eis under “Spotlight.” These rules

Dear Barto's World,


Congratulations! You have been selected to be featured on Certification Map's The 411 on everything education! 100 Best Education Blogs list.


Your blog offers important information, news and opinions about education. This provides teachers, parents and students an insightful look at our education system and everything it has to offer. There is a plethora of information on the Internet, but because of your blog, students, teachers, parents and young professionals can easily learn from your experiences and views without all the clutter.



You have been selected as one of the best educational blogs among other educational blogs!



We recently launched CertificationMap http://certificationmap.com/the-411-on-everything-education-100-best-education-blogs/ to help inform future teachers about the requirements for certification in their state and to ease their minds about the process. On our website is a blog, which we update often with information for teachers.



We think your readers will find the information on Certification Map much more useful than going to the Department of Education website for each state. We provide a wide range of information and news regarding anything and everything education. We'd greatly appreciate it if you would take a look at what we've built and consider sharing it with them.



As this is constantly a work in process we would love to hear any comments, suggestions, or questions you might have.



Again, congratulations and keep up the good work!



Best,

The Certification Map Team
