Proposed IDEA Regs Reformatted by Wrightslaw

Guidance l Articles l News

 Wrightslaw: IDEA 2004 l
Publications l IDEA 97

On June 10, the U. S. Department of Education issued proposed IDEA regulations. (read Dept of Ed Issues Draft of Proposed Regulations)

The proposed regulations were 652 pages long (double-spaced, Courier, 12 points).

To make the regulations more accessible, we reformatted this long document into two documents.

Proposed IDEA Regulations (97 pages) and Explanations & Commentary (65 pages). We also deleted lengthy tables and discussions about funding formulas.

For most readers, this reformatting will make the regulations less cumbersome, less intimidating, less expensive to print, and easier to read and study if you decide you wish to make a written or public comment.
