It is an understatement to say that COVID-19 disrupted students’ education. Services for students with disabilities have been especially impacted by the pandemic, but some states have adopted strategies to proactively serve students with disabilities and fulfill their legal obligations during the pandemic. This new report from NSBA’s Center for Public Education addresses some key challenges states are facing to meet the requirements of IDEA Part B and provides insight into solutions and best practices that states may leverage to meet the requirements for IDEA compliance, and, ultimately, the needs of their students with disabilities.
Full of challenge and change, 2020 was like no other year. NSBA's State of the Association provides a snapshot of the association's advocacy and member services work as well as our ongoing transformation.
