Public and Parent Reporting Requirements: NCLB and IDEA Regulations. inForum
Sopko, Kim Moherek; Reder, Nancy
Project Forum
No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) both include a commitment to keep the public informed about educational progress that students are making, and both emphasize the importance of involving parents in the education of their children. An underlying assumption of NCLB and IDEA is that in order for parents to be involved in their child's education, they must be informed. Both laws contain key components that ensure parents and public are informed. This document briefly introduces each law and summarizes the reporting requirements as articulated in the implementing regulations of each law. Next, similarities and differences between these requirements are summarized with a discussion of how the two laws interface in the areas of reporting to the public and parents. (Contains 2 tables and 22 footnotes.)
