Publications - Education Laws and Regulations

Please note: With the exception of the Procedural Safeguards Notice, Sample Due Process Complaint Form, and Sample Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) for preschool and school-age, the New York State special education publications and policy memoranda on this web site have not yet been revised to reflect the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) 2004 changes. Beginning July 1, 2005, school districts must implement the new requirements of IDEA as found in PL 108-446 and applicable federal regulations. In addition, existing State law and regulations must continue to be implemented to the extent consistent with federal requirements.

The most-requested publications relating to Education Laws and Regulations and students with disabilities are available on-line. Please see the IDEA home page for complete information related to IDEA 2004.
