Overview

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) provides funds to states for the education of children with disabilities. It contains detailed requirements for the receipt of these funds, including the core requirement of the provision of a free appropriate public education (FAPE). IDEA was comprehensively revised in 1997 by P.L. 105-17, but Congress has continued to grapple with issues relating to the Act. This report provides a brief overview of the Act with particular attention paid to issues of recent congressional concern, such as funding and the provision of FAPE for children with disabilities found to have brought a weapon to school. On June 21, 2005, the Department of Education (ED) issued proposed regulations for P.L. 108-446. Comments on the proposal are due by September 6, 2005, and ED expects to issue final regulations by December 2005. Although many of the regulatory provisions simply track the statutory language, reflect comments in the conference report, or include provisions in current IDEA regulations, there are places where the regulations provide more guidance. This book analyzes the proposed regulations with an emphasis on those areas where additional guidance is provided. It also notes provisions in P.L. 108-446 for which ED has not provided guidance, analyzes current funding trends and presents the full text of the Act itself.
