It replaces the previous website, which experienced a prolonged outage earlier this year.
The department’s Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services (OSERS) collected feedback from parents, educators, administrators, service providers and advocates for infants, toddlers, children and youth with disabilities about what to include on a new site. The new version incorporates this feedback with search capabilities, expanded content and easier navigation.
IDEA ensures a free, appropriate public education to eligible children with disabilities throughout the nation and ensures special education and related services to those children. IDEA stakeholders can continue to provide feedback on the new website on the OSERS blog.
