Arizona Department of Economic Security; Written Findings and Decision and Compliance Agreement Under the Infants and Toddlers With Disabilities Program-Part C of the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act
Section 457 of the General Education Provisions Act (GEPA) authorizes the U.S. Department of Education (Department) to enter into a compliance agreement with a recipient that is failing to comply substantially with Federal program requirements. In order to enter into a compliance agreement, the Department must determine, in written findings, that the recipient cannot comply until a future date with the applicable program requirements and that a compliance agreement is a viable means of bringing about such compliance. On December 16, 2004, the Department entered into a compliance agreement with the Arizona Department of Economic Security (DES). Under section 457(b)(2) of GEPA, the written findings and decision and compliance agreement must be published in the Federal Register.
