New Significant Disproportionality Regulations Webinar

Discipline Peer-to-Peer Exchange

This webinar focused on key components of the new significant disproportionality regulations presented in §20 U.S.C. 1418(d) and 34 CFR §§300.646 and 300.647. The regulations require states to determine whether significant disproportionality based on race/ethnicity is occurring with respect to the identification of children as children with disabilities, including identification as children with particular impairments; placement of children in particular educational settings; and incidence, duration, and type of disciplinary actions, including suspensions and expulsions. Timeline for state compliance is July 1, 2018, and states must make significant disproportionality determinations using new methodology during SY 2018-19. The webinar highlighted new OSEP Significant Disproportionality Resources and included resources that comprise IDC 's Disproportionality and Equity Resource Collection. The webinar was part of IDC's Discipline Peer-to-Peer Exchange.
