NCLB Update from AUCD
- From the April 28, 2008 edition of the AUCD Legislative News in Brief:
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.Sandy, Illinois (alpy2@...)
