FOR YOUR INFORMATION:
At the March 26, 2010, meeting, the State Board of Education acted on proposed changes for the Part B State Regulations implementing the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). Prior to the State Board action, the Office of Special Education published the proposed regulation changes, solicited public comments, and held public hearings throughout the state. The regulation changes primarily reflect the new federal regulations implementing IDEA, which became effective December 1, 2008.
The final regulations, as approved by the State Board of Education, can be found on our website at http://dese.mo.gov/divspeced/stateplan/StatePlan2010.html. Responsible public agencies should be following the provisions of IDEA 2004, the federal regulations, and the Missouri State Plan for Special Education-2010.
