Request for Information on the Use of Results Data in Making Determinations Under Sections 616(d)(2) and 642 of Individuals With Disabilities Education Act (IDEA)
The U.S. Department of Education (Department) is requesting stakeholder input on how best to use results data (e.g., performance on assessments, graduation rates, and early childhood outcomes) in its accountability system under the IDEA. We believe that the Department must provide greater support to States’ efforts to improve results for infants, toddlers, children and youth with disabilities (children with disabilities). We need to ensure that States focus not only on complying with provisions of the law, but also on improving results for children with disabilities.
Dates: Responses must be received by April 25, 2014.
