Subject: Implementation Timelines for Revised Part B State Regulations

Source: Jackie Bruner, Director, Compliance

Intended Audience: Administrators of Special Education

Date: March 30, 2010

At the March 26, 2010, meeting, the State Board of Education approved the proposed changes for the Part B State Regulations Implementing IDEA.

The State Plan with changes marked can be found on our website at http://dese.mo.gov/divspeced/stateplan/PublicHearing2010.html.  The new regulation will be submitted to the Office of the Secretary of State for publication in the Missouri Register.  The regulation will be final thirty (30) days after publication, which we anticipate 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 new regulation, responsible public agencies should follow the provisions of IDEA 2004, the federal regulations, and the current State Plan.
