    If you have special needs students in your regular ed classroom all day, does each student count as more two students in looking at your number of students in your classroom? For instance, you may have 2 special needs in your classroom and 14 regular ed students, so you would you count that as 18 students?

    Everywhere I've been, each student is counted as one student.

    The only exception to this would be our kindergarten students who count as half--not because of their size, but because kindergarten is a half time program in most places here.

    We count them as one as well. Now we do have a law that states that only 30% of your class can include students labeled special education.

    We count them as one student each. I teach in an inclusion class, 1 regular education teacher and 1 special education teacher. I can have up to 8 special needs students in the inclusion class.

    This year, we will have 24 students total. 8 of them are special education students.
