(a) A charter school is considered a local educational agency. A charter school shall be responsible for meeting the requirements of local educational agencies under applicable federal, state, and local laws, including those relating to special education. The local educational agency status of a charter school may not preclude a charter school from developing partnerships with other school corporations or schools for services, resources, and programs by mutual agreement or a formal contract.
    (b) A charter school shall have primary responsibility for special education at the school, including identification and service provision. The charter school shall be responsible for meeting the needs of enrolled students with disabilities.
