§ 56028. Educational Assistance Class Instruction.
Educational assistance classes are instructional activities offered consistent with the provisions of Subchapter 1 of Chapter 7 of this Division, and designed to address the educational limitations of students with disabilities who are admitted to the institution pursuant to Educational Code Sections 76000 et seq. and who would be unable to substantially benefit from general college classes even with appropriate academic adjustments, auxiliary aids and services. Such classes generate revenue based on the number of full-time equivalent students (FTES) enrolled in the classes.
Such classes shall be open to enrollment of students who do not have disabilities, however, to qualify as an educational assistance class, a majority of those enrolled in the class must be students with disabilities.
Educational assistance classes offered for credit or noncredit shall meet the applicable requirements for degree credit, non-degree credit, or noncredit set forth in Sections 55002 and 55705.5 of this part. In addition, educational assistance classes shall:
(a) Be designed to enable students with disabilities to compensate for educational limitations and/or acquire the skills necessary to complete their educational objectives;
(b) Employ instructors who meet minimum qualifications set forth in Section 53414 of this Division.
(c) Utilize curriculum, instructional methods, or materials specifically designed to address the educational limitations of students with disabilities. Curriculum committees responsible for reviewing and/or recommending educational assistance class offerings shall have or obtain the expertise appropriate for determining whether the requirements of this section are satisfied; and
(d) Utilize student/instructor ratios determined to be appropriate by the District given the educational limitations of the students with disabilities enrolled in each class. Class size should not be so large as to impede measurable progress or to endanger the well-being and safety of students or staff.
