      No Child Left Behind

      The House continues to work on legislation to reauthorize the No Child Left Behind Act.  Last month AUCD signed onto comments prepared by the CCD Education Task Force on the House Education and Labor Committee’s initial draft: http://www.aucd.org/template/page.cfm?id=491.  CCD has become increasingly concerned about potential attempts to further exclude individuals with disabilities from assessments or attempts to use the IEP as an accountability measure.  Last week, AUCD signed onto a CCD letter to the Committee strongly opposing the use of IEPs as a measure of student progress in NCLB.  CCD also visited members of the Committee to educate them about the contents of IEPs and why they are not designed as appropriate measures for NCLB.   CCD remains very concerned about the possibility of this issue being offered as an amendment down the road when the bill is introduced and marked up.

        No Child Left Behind

        On April 22, AUCD staff attended a briefing where ED Secretary Margaret Spellings announced proposed amendments to regulations governing No Child Left Behind (NCLB). These regulations are an effort by the Bush Administration to clarify and strengthen current Title I regulations in the areas of assessment, accountability, public school choice, and supplemental educational services.  One of the most significant changes in the regulations, particularly for individuals with disabilities, is the requirement for States to establish a uniform definition of graduation rate by 2012-2013.  The new regulation would require states to implement the definition consistent with and agreed to by the National Governors Association (NGA).  Public comments are due June 23; AUCD will prepare comments and work with the Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities Education Task Force on joint comments.  Links to the department’s summary and the Federal Register Notice of Proposed Rulemaking are on the AUCD policy webpage: http://www.aucd.org/template/page.cfm?id=491.
