IDEA – Building The Legacy of IDEA 2004

This site was created to provide a “one-stop shop” for resources related to IDEA and its implementing regulations, released on August 3, 2006. It is a “living” website and will change and grow as resources and information become available. When fully implemented, the site will provide searchable versions of IDEA and the regulations, access to cross-referenced content from other laws (e.g., the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), etc.), video clips on selected topics, topic briefs on selected regulations, links to OSEP’s Technical Assistance and Dissemination (TA&D) Network and a Q&A Corner where you can submit questions, and a variety of other information sources.

IDEA Changes Implemented in New York

Changes to the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA),

now require all states to ensure that the school district where the nonpublic school is 

located will now be responsible for special education services for your child, including 

individual evaluations, Committee on Special Education (CSE) meetings and development of an individualized education services program (IESP). An IESP must be developed in the same manner and with the same contents as an Individualized Education Program (IEP).  It is called an IESP to distinguish it from the IEP that would be developed if you were to reenroll your child in the public school district where you live.
