Programs for disabled children get high rating

Posted: Updated:

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - State officials say South Dakota has received the highest possible federal rating for education programs that help children with disabilities.

The U.S. Education Department reports that South Dakota is one of only 23 states or territories to meet the requirements and purposes of the federal Individuals with Disabilities Act for both school programs and a program that helps infants and toddlers.

One part of the federal law monitors the effectiveness of special education services at the preschool levels and in elementary schools and high schools. Another part rates the Birth to Three program, which services younger children and their families.
