OCLB is sending this out as a reminder that public comments on the proposed IDEA Part B regulations are due July 28, so please take a look at the proposals and send in any comments you may have!
~ ~ ~
On Tuesday May 13, a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) that will supplement the IDEA Part B final regulations was published in the Federal Register. The Supplemental NPRM is available for comments through the Federal eRulemaking Portal or vial postal mail, commercial delivery, or hand delivery. Comments by fax or by email will not be accepted. Comments are due by July 28, 2008.
The NPRM addresses such issues as revocation of parental consent to provision of special education services (unilateral withdrawal of parental consent to continued services) as well as parents' use of non-attorney advocates at due process hearings. As these are important issues to the parent community, we encourage you to take a look at the Department of Education's proposed regulations and submit comments.
You can find the NPRM as follows:
