Federal Register, v64 n48 p12406-672 Mar 12 1999
This document presents final regulations for the Assistance to States for Education of Children with Disabilities program under Part B of the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA Part B) and the Early Intervention Program for Infants and Toddlers with Disabilities under Part C of the Act. These regulations are needed to implement changes made to Part B by the IDEA Amendments of 1997; to make other changes to the Part B regulations based on relevant, long-standing policy guidance; and to revise the requirements on state complaint procedures under both the Part B and Part C programs. The regulations take effect on May 11, 1999; however, compliance with these regulations will not be required until the date that the state receives FY 1999 funding under the program or on October 1, 1999, whichever is earlier. Changes to the program are explained and include regulations affecting: (1) definitions; (2) state and local eligibility; (3) services; (4) Individualized Education Programs; (5) children in private schools; and (6) discipline for children with disabilities. Comments on the proposed changes and on the outcome of the changes are also included. Appendices include a question and answer section on the new regulations and requirements, and a subject index.
