The is a Comment on the Department of Education (ED) Proposed Rule: Assistance to States for the Education of Children with Disabilities

For related information, Open Docket Folder


As the Superintendent of Owosso Public Schools, I disagree with USED’s interpretation of the IDEA maintenance of effort regulations in 300.203. I think USED’s new interpretation of the maintenance of effort provisions is particularly unfortunate given the difficulty in sustaining the same level of local, or state and local funding for special education in these challenging fiscal times. Moreover, USED’s new eligibility calculation could force my Board to approve a special education budget that is not accurate. I hope USED reconsiders the proposed rule.
