Subject: Implementation Timelines for Revised Part B State Regulations
Source: Margaret Strecker, Director, Compliance

Intended Audience: Administrators of Special Education

Date: May 23, 2007

This message is being sent to respond to questions we have received about the implementation date for the revised Part B State Regulations implementing the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).

At the April 2007 meeting, the State Board of Education approved a proposed change for the Part B State Regulations implementing IDEA. The final regulation can be found on our website http://dese.mo.gov/divspeced/stateplan/index.html. The regulation has been submitted to the Office of the Secretary of State for publication in the Missouri Register. The regulation will be final thirty days after publication, which we hope will be in June.

Once we know the publication date, notification will be sent via SELS of the implementation date of the regulation.

Prior to the effective date of the regulation, Responsible Public Agencies should follow the provisions of IDEA 2004, which took effect July 1, 2005, and the federal regulations implementing IDEA 2004 which took effect October 13, 2006, and the current state plan to the extent
it is consistent with IDEA 2004 and the federal regulations.
