The final rule published in the Federal Register on December 19, 2016, amended the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act to help to ensure that States meaningfully identify LEAs with significant disproportionality and that States assist LEAs in ensuring that children with disabilities are properly identified for services, receive necessary services in the least restrictive environment, and are not disproportionately removed from their educational placements by disciplinary removals. This webinar, from February 2, 2017 will provide a broad overview of the contents of the rule, including the requirements on the standard methodology proposed, reservation of funds for comprehensive coordinated early intervening services, and data requirements and calculations.
