from the Council of Parent Attorneys & Advocates
S Department of Education plans to publish proposed / draft IDEA regulations
soon - in Spring 2005.
Note: These meetings will be held from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. and from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Announcement in Federal Register
We understand that the final IDEA 2004 regulations will be published in late 2005 or early 2006.
Your State Laws & Regulations
laws and regulations that exceed the IDEA 2004 minimum remain in effect.
States must follow them until they are repealed.
You should be able to download your state special education regulations from the website maintained by your State Department of Education.
Efforts to repeal state laws and regulations are underway in some states. We hope advocacy groups in these states will fight to stop them, as recently happened in Massachusetts.
