Federal regulations on Significant Disproportionality (Equity in IDEA) went into effect on January 18, 2017. The regulations establish a standard methodology that states must use in identifying LEAs with significant disproportionality, and require that states establish various thresholds with stakeholder input. In order to gather input from stakeholders, the Office of Special Education has posted a recorded webinar with an overview of the regulations as well as results of preliminary data analysis.
