DCPS will miss Special Ed deadline

It appears that the District's public school system is going to miss a judicially mandated deadline to improve services for special needs students.
In the 2006 consent decree, the school system agreed to reduce by 65 percent a huge backlog of decisions from hearing officers regarding the timely placement of students in special education programs.

But a data analyst appointed to monitor the city's efforts told a federal judge Monday that the system is implementing only 29 percent of the decisions and won't meet the goal by June.
