Assistance to States for the Education of Children With Disabilities
Document Number: 2011-22784
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-09-28
Agency: Department of Education
The Secretary proposes to amend regulations under Part B of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA or Act). These regulations govern the Assistance to States for the Education of Children with Disabilities program, including the Preschool Grants program. The Secretary seeks public comment on these proposed amendments regarding the use of public benefits or insurance in which a child participates to provide or pay for services required under Part B of IDEA. Since the Part B regulations were amended in 2006, our experience with implementing the provisions on obtaining parental consent for the use of public benefits or insurance has raised two important issues. First, the current regulations do not require that public agencies inform parents specifically of all of the protections regarding access to public benefits or insurance, including their rights under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and IDEA confidentiality provisions. Second, State educational agencies (SEAs) and local educational agencies (LEAs) have expressed concerns about the overall costs and administrative burdens imposed by requiring parental consent to access public benefits or insurance, in addition to the parental consent required by FERPA.

Document Number: 2011-24563
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-09-23
Agency: Department of Education
The Secretary of Education (Secretary) established requirements for the State Fiscal Stabilization Fund (SFSF) program in a notice of final requirements, definitions, and approval criteria published in the Federal Register on November 12, 2009 (November 2009 Notice). In this notice, the Secretary proposes to revise some of those requirements. In a separate notice of interim final requirement, the Secretary is extending to January 31, 2012, the deadline by which a State must collect and publicly report data and information under the SFSF program. In addition, the Secretary proposes in this notice to establish a priority that the U.S. Department of Education (Department) may use, as appropriate, in any future discretionary grant competitions. The Department would give a priority to States that have developed and implemented the statewide longitudinal data system (SLDS) required under SFSF Indicator (b)(1) on or before the applicable deadline. Through this notice, we also remind grantees that under its current authority, the Department may identify grantees as high risk and impose sanctions on them for failing to meet programmatic requirements. In addition, the Department is proposing that it may take enforcement action against a State educational agency (SEA) under certain circumstances where a State fails to meet the requirements of Indicators (b)(1), (c)(11), or (c)(12).

Agency: Department of Education
On November 12, 2009, the Secretary of Education (Secretary) published in the Federal Register a notice of final requirements, definitions, and approval criteria for the State Fiscal Stabilization Fund (SFSF) program (November 2009 Notice). In that notice, the Secretary established September 30, 2011 as the deadline by which States had to collect and publicly report data and other information on various SFSF indicators and descriptors. Since publication of the November 2009 notice, States have faced many challenges and competing priorities in trying to meet the requirements of some of the SFSF indicators by the September 30, 2011 deadline. As a result, a number of States will be unable to comply fully with the SFSF requirements by the September 30, 2011 deadline. Accordingly, in this interim final requirement, the Secretary extends that deadline to January 31, 2012.
