Published Notices of IDEA Regulations (2006-current)
Agencies write Federal regulations to implement and enforce the statutes passed by Congress.
Periodically, the department issues new or revised regulations to address the implementation and interpretation of the IDEA.
Whenever the department proposes new or revised regulations, it publishes a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) in the Federal Register and the public has an opportunity to submit written comments.
In each Notice of Final Regulations, also published in the Federal Register, the department analyzes and responds to the public’s comments in the section titled “Analysis of Comments and Changes.”
The following list includes each Notice of Final Regulations published since the IDEA statute’s last reauthorization Dec. 3, 2004, as well as:
- A summary of the changes;
- The effective date of the changes;
- The “Analysis of Comments and Changes;” and
- The revised regulations.
