The school district’s special education plan is an action plan that describes the local Board of School Director’s commitment to ensure that a quality education will be provided to each of its students with a disability eligible for special education, over the upcoming three years. The content of the special education plan describes the special education program and services that are provided within a school district and those special education programs and services which are accessed by the school district from outside the school district’s geographical boundaries.

The special education plan shall be developed every 3 years consistent with the 3-year review cycle of the strategic plan of the school district. The Secretary will prescribe the format, content and time for submission of the special education plan. (§14.104(a))
A special education plan reflects on going programs and services and incorporates anticipated changes in programming as a result of corrective action generated by the cyclical monitoring and improvement planning and other factors. The special education plan is completed by school districts in conjunction with the school district’s strategic plan structure. The school district’s special education plan is on a three year cycle which corresponds to the school district’s strategic plan cycle so that the information in the special education plan can be applied to the school district’s strategic plan, especially the professional education and induction programs.
