By the Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services

WASHINGTON (June 30, 2017)—The U.S. Department of Education published final regulations under Part B and C of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) in the Federal Register today.

The final regulations make technical conforming changes needed to implement statutory amendments made to the IDEA by the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).

These changes revise relevant regulations that implement the IDEA statutory requirements amended by the ESSA that are applicable to children with disabilities.

The amendments remove and/or revise IDEA definitions based on changes made to the definitions in the ESEA, as amended by the ESSA, and also update cross-references to the ESSA in the IDEA regulations.
