Special Education & USED’s Regulatory Review: What You Need to Know

The U.S. Department of Education (USED) and all other government agencies are in the process of reviewing every regulation and policy document they’ve issued over the years. Their goal is to identify any that “eliminate jobs, or inhibit job creation;” are “outdated, unnecessary, or ineffective;” “impose costs that exceed benefits;” or interfere with regulatory reform.

Each agency is creating their own timeline and process for their regulatory review. USED put together a Regulatory Review Taskforce to make recommendations on whether regulations or guidance documents should be rescinded, modified, or kept as is. They also released a progress report containing a list of regulations and guidance documents that were being considered, and  issued a notice seeking public comment.

See the  National Center for Learning Disabilities (NCLD) article, “USED’s Regulatory Review: What You Need to Know” to learn more about the regulatory review and what it means for students with disabilities.
