Special Education Rules and Regulations
USBE approved new Special Education Rules and Regulations as of October 2016. We were hoping to pick up printed copies at our USEAM meeting on Thursday. There has been a delay in the state’s printing so that is no longer a possibility. Instead we will are sending out the PDF version and will send out printed copies once they are complete. The document is 225 pages long and we do not expect you to read the full thing. However, we strongly recommend that you review the information so you are familiar. The document is bookmarked to help you access all areas within the Table of Contents.
If you don’t have time to review the full document, it would be wise to look at the following in-depth:
Child Find and Evaluation System page 19-28
Charter School and their Students page 69- 75
State Complaint Procedures page 82-96
Discipline Procedures page 107-113
LEA Responsibilities page 185-196
*This is the first time USBE has included a table with allowable costs for IDEA within the Special Education Rules and Regulations.
Special Education Monthly Data
Hopefully the weekly SE Data Compliance tracker is being helpful. Starting Friday we will be incorporating Child Find and SE Evaluation into our tracker. This should bring further transparency in our Department. Below is our Monthly overview of our SE tracker that is sent in email.
