Effective Date: Amendment to Special Education Programs and Services- Parental Participation
On October 19, 2018, the state board of education passed on
final reading an amendment to Special Education Programs and Services - Parent Participation, Rule 0520-01-09-.15 that requires parents receive a copy of a draft Individualized Education
Program (IEP) at least 48 hours before a scheduled IEP meeting, if the school
or district creates such a draft. Parents may decline their right to
receive a copy of the draft IEP if one is developed.
State rules and regulations are effective 90 days after
submission to the secretary of state’s office. Therefore, this rule
will go into effect March 12, 2019 and updates to EasyIEP will be made at that
time to reflect the changes outlined in the attached memo. In order
to prepare for these changes, it is advised that directors of special education
share this information with applicable staff and begin making preparations for
any necessary changes in practice.
