A Child Study Team referral is really a "last resort" and should only be considered after every other option to improve the student's performance has been attempted in the general education setting. The Department of Education has identified Camden as a district with a "high rate of students placed in separate classes or schools." This may imply that students are not being educated in the Least Restrictive Environment. Because our district has been identified, all special education referrals and placements are now subject to scrutiny by the State, and therefore must comply with the New Jersey Administrative Code.
