In the last two federal stimulus packages, there were discussions about flexibilities needed for school districts regarding the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). However, no such provisions made it into the final bills. There will most likely be an additional stimulus coming and it is important that school board members advocate for needed changes. Please forward to IASB any changes/flexibilities your school district needs regarding IDEA timelines and services. Proposals need to be about specific provisions that are proving difficult right now – examples would be really helpful. Please send proposals to IASB Governmental Relations staff.
