School District Efforts to Achieve Equality of Educational Opportunity and Nondiscrimination
Many districts have developed and implemented school improvement plans through funding from programs such as Carl Perkins, IASA, or Goals 2000. Districts will have the opportunity to discuss these efforts and highlight achievements. Districts will be asked to evaluate the overall effectiveness of these and other efforts in achieving pupil nondiscrimination and equality of educational opportunity.
There are no current opportunities.

Equitable Services Set-Aside - Fiscal Requirements
"How to Determine the Equitable Services Set-Aside Calculation"
This technical assistance document provides an overview of the IDEA regulations on equitable services. Examples are provided on how the calculation must be done and how the funds must be spent. The document also reviews the circumstances in which an LEA may set-aside funds but not be required to spend the entire amount.
The permanent rule for Significant Developmental Delay is now in effect. Individualized Education Program (IEP) teams may now consider identifying SDD as a disability category for children ages 3 through 9, for both initial and reevaluations. Other suspected disability categories still need to be considered before identifying a child's disability category as SDD. If a child's 3 year reevaluation is not due, children who are 6 may continue to receive special education and related services under the category of SDD.
