IDEA 2004 Regulations:
Comments & Public Meetings

On December 3, 2004, the President signed the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act into law.

The U. S. Department of Education is requesting comments and recommendations from the public and conducting public meetings before they develop and publish draft regulations for IDEA 2004.

If you decide to provide comments and / or recommendations, make your comments as specific as possible. Include the following information:

* Your area of involvement (e.g., special education, regular education or early intervention)
* Your role (e.g., parent, teacher, student, service provider, administrator, or researcher).

You may send your comments and recommendations by mail to:

Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services
U.S. Department of Education
400 Maryland Avenue, SW
Potomac Center Plaza, Room 5126
Washington, DC 20202-2641

You may also send your comments by email to comments@ed.gov
In the subject line of your email, please type Comments on IDEA-2004.

Note: If you decide to provide comments, you should read the full text of the notice in the Federal Register, December 29, 2004 (Volume 69, Number 249) for more information about this process.
http://www.regulations.gov/freddocs/04-28503.htm

Deadline: Comments and recommendations must be received by February 28, 2005.
