Please note that these timelines are suggestions that will prepare States for full compliance in SY 2018–2019. While States can make annual determinations of significant disproportionality anytime during SY 2018–2019, for purposes of this Model Timeline, we are assuming States make annual determinations between March 2019 and May 2019. States are not required to follow these timelines. Each State has its own unique circumstances, and these timelines are just a way to outline the different streams of work that States should consider as they implement the new rule.
