RE: § 115C-107.6 Duties of local educational agencies
According to North Carolina Statues Chapter 115C-107.6, there are duties of Local Educational Agencies, sometimes referred to as LEA’s. Every local educational organization, in making available education for children with disabilities must meet specific criteria for the teaching of students with disabilities. These agencies must also, meet the terms of IDEA and the set of laws approved by the State Board under this Article. In supplement, every local educational agency will contain an outcome of course of action, measures, and agendas that are unswerving with this Article, IDEA, and regulations approved by the State Board. There should not be any child banned from attending the public schools of the LEA where the student lives or help or from being present in any program that is offered to children with disabilities. When the student is eligible to receive FAPE within a curriculum controlled by or supervised by the management of the Department of Health and Human Services or the Department of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, the school managerial entity will discuss with the aforementioned agencies staff for their contribution and involvement of the right placement in the specific program and progress of the students IEP.
No educational charges or other charges will be asked of students with disabilities or their parents with the exception of fees charged to all students. The prerequisites of a at no cost suitable community schooling inside the amenities of the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention may not stop that Department from billing for other assistance or therapy.
