The U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Special Education Programs has released question 4 in their series of comment solicitations as part of the results driven accountability reform currently underway for IDEA. The Results Driven Accountability process seeks to emphasize educational results and functional outcomes for students with disabilities and creating a system that maximizes resources available. OSEP posts each question on the Department of Education blog to solicit comments from stakeholders and special educators.
CEC posted about the second question here and the third question here in previous Policy Insider posts. In addition CEC has shared input with OSEP on the reform process through several meetings in Washington, D.C. over the summer, and will continue to participate in the process.
