State Board of Education Amends Rule for Administration of the Exceptional Children’s Educational Act

The Colorado State Board of Education has amended the rules for administrating the Exceptional Children’s Educational Act. The purpose of the proposed amendments are:

  • to replace the definition of Administrative Unit that was inadvertently deleted through previous emergency rulemaking;
  • to bring the state into compliance with recent legislation adopting a Tier 1 Due Process Hearing System (SB 11-061); and
  • to repeal Section 2.08(6)(b)(i) and renumber, because by operation of rule the language has expired; the section outlines the criteria for determining if a child has a specific learning disability that prevents the child from receiving reasonable education benefit from general education.

A hearing on the amended rules will be held on Wednesday, August 3, 2011 at the Department of Education State Board Room, 201 E. Colfax Ave., Denver, Colorado 80203, beginning at 2:30 pm.
