Federal Special Education Student Reporting - PI2197
The department has clarified its guidance on student residency for the purpose of compulsory school attendance and fiscal responsibility, and has developed procedures for LEAs to use with respect to providing FAPE to students with disabilities in county jails, detention centers, hospitals, or residing in other settings considered a “children's home” under Wis. Stat. §121.79(1)(a). There is separate and specific guidance for students residing in Residential Care Centers (RCCs).
The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act of 2004 (IDEA) addresses the National Instructional Materials Accessibility Standard (NIMAS) at 34 CFR 300.172(a)(1). The goal of NIMAS is to promote the development of high quality and consistent source files to be used to create specialized formats for students with print disabilities. Compliance with NIMAS is mandatory. Students with print disabilities will receive their textbooks and core materials in the alternate format at the same time as students without print disabilities.
