Call Milwaukee Child Find at 475-8593 or 438-3530 January 24, 2008 For Immediate Attention – Please promptly complete and return the form found on the back To: Milwaukee Non-public Schools Re: Affirmation of Consultation under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) From: Dare Boling, Coordinator, MPS Non-Conventional Programs On the back of this letter you will find a very brief IDEA “Affirmation of Consultation” form for Milwaukee non-public schools. For the past few years, MPS has regularly consulted with non-public schools on topics mandated under the most recent reauthorization of IDEA. Meeting notices, agendas, and meeting minutes are available at this web site: http://www2.milwaukee.k12.wi.us/title i/Web_Pages/minutes.htm. This year, consultation under IDEA is scheduled for February 7, 2008. For your convenience we will be holding the IDEA consultation in conjunction with the consultation required under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). We encourage you to participate in this consultation to learn about resources available to non-public school students under IDEA and to participate in the decision making progress. The consultation will take place at MPS Central Services Auditorium at 5225 W. Vliet between 8:00 AM and noon on the date noted above. More information about IDEA may be found at the non-public school web site designed to share information about non-public school participation under IDEA and ESEA. The site is at: http://www2.milwaukee.k12.wi.us/title_i/web_Pages/non-public.html. Non-public schools may also use an email listserv to get and seek information about IDEA in Milwaukee. To join the listserv, send an email request to Ed Valent at email@example.com. Finally, I may be contacted directly for information about IDEA for students attending Milwaukee non-public schools by calling 438-3413 or 438-3631. Access to information and consultation participation under IDEA also is extended to parents and guardians of students in non-public schools. We hope that you will encourage interested parents to attend the IDEA consultations and to contact me to address any questions that they might have about the resources available under IDEA. The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction requires MPS to account for the responses of every Milwaukee school or to document our attempts to get a response to the IDEA Affirmation of Consultation document. Please sign and return the document on the back of this letter with the enclosed postage paid envelope as soon as possible to help us complete this process.
