Agency Extends Special Education Reporting Mandates

The Education Dept’s Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services will extend mandates that require school districts to report the number and resolution of complaints they receive from the parents of special education students.

Public Comment Deadline: Sept. 27.

Parents can file complaints with school districts for their children who receive special education instructions under Part C of Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). Districts, through the state education agency, are required to track the number of written, signed complaints; mediation requests; and hearing requests and the status of these actions. ED wants to retain that reporting process to make sure special education students are getting the proper classroom instruction.
