Vermont educators: Initial impact of special ed guideline repeal minimal

Oct 26, 2017 by

The rescinded special education guidelines don’t appear affect Vermont programs, but educators say will monitor future changes.

Chittenden County program directors say special education in Vermont was unaffected by the federal repeal of scores of guidelines by the U.S. Department of Education.

On Friday, 72 “outdated, unnecessary, or ineffective” special education guidance documents were rescinded by the Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services.

“There is no impact that we can see at this time,” Vermont Family Network Director of Health Karen Price said on Wednesday. The network supports Vermont families of children with special needs.

The majority of the clean up targets memos and paperwork that predates the 2004 authorization of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and are considered “irrelevant,” according a document released by the U.S. Department of Education.
