Principals at New York City schools are being asked to step up efforts to improve education for students with special needs under guidelines developed with input from parents. Among the guidelines: Students in special education will not be moved unless necessary and principals will receive incentives to boost achievement among students with special needs. "We'll be making it clearer that the outcomes of students with disabilities count," the city's special-education chief said. As part of the plan, 200 schools will receive professional development in special education.
