Primers

More in Primers:

The National Association of State Directors of Special Education produced a series of primers for the charter school community. These primers provide background information and resources to facilitate the successful inclusion of students with disabilities in charter schools. Links to the documents from the Primer website that are available at this time on this website include the three main documents (Authorizer Primer, Operator Primer and State Officials Primer) and related training materials that are listed below.

In addition, this site contains all 12 state-specific Primers, the Special Reports prepared on topics of critical interest to the charter school community, and a State Matrix displaying linkages between special education laws and charter schools in each state.
