LDA Comments on the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking

LDA has responded to the U.S. Department of Education’s proposed regulations on significant disproportionality. The Department proposed a complicated uniform mathematical calculation and expanded use of “early intervening” funds for pre-K and students with disabilities. After much consideration, LDA opposed the adoption of a uniform methodology, noting that any “formula” for calculating significant disproportionality of racial and ethnic groups in special education must be flexible and account for the broader variables that may contribute to the overrepresentation.
