Request for Information on Addressing Significant Disproportionality Under Section 618(d) of the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act (IDEA)
The U.S. Department of Education (Department) is requesting public comment on the actions that the Department should take to address significant disproportionality based on race and ethnicity in the identification, placement, and discipline of children with disabilities. Specifically, we are requesting input from the public on actions the Department should take related to: (1) Significant disproportionality based on race and ethnicity in the (a) identification of children as children with disabilities, including identification by disability category; (b) placement of children with disabilities in particular educational settings; and (c) the incidence, duration, and type of disciplinary action taken with respect to children with disabilities; and (2) ensuring that funds reserved for comprehensive, coordinated early intervening services (CEIS) under Part B of the IDEA are used to effectively address significant disproportionality.
Comments should be submitted electronically through the Federal eRulemaking Portal at http://www.regulations.gov by selecting Docket ID number ED-2014-ICCD-0089
Responses must be received by July 21, 2014.

Nearly two million dollars will be spent on research instead of the excellent education of America’s children.
