Announcement from the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services

Your Family May Be Eligible for the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP). The ACP provides eligible households up to $30/month off internet bills (or $75/month on Tribal lands), as well as a one-time $100 discount off a laptop, tablet, or computer. Nearly 40% of U.S. households qualify for ACP, but millions of families have yet to claim their benefit. Find out if your family qualifies at GetInternet.gov.

Updated Notice of Procedural Safeguards

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) offers you and your child legal protections during the evaluation and Individualized Education Program (IEP) process. These protections are called Procedural Safeguards.  In September 2022, the Procedural Safeguards were updated. SPEDTex has the updated document available in twenty-eight languages.  Click here to download a copy.
