OGC-99-35, Mar 25, 1999
Pursuant to a legislative requirement, GAO reviewed the Department of Education's new rule on providing assistance to states for the education of children with disabilities and the early intervention program for infants and toddlers with disabilities. GAO noted that: (1) the final rule would implement changes made to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (Part B) and the Early Intervention Program for Infants and Toddlers with Disabilities (Part C of the act) by the 1997 amendments to the act; (2) the rule would revise the requirements on state complaint procedures under the Parts B and C programs; and (3) Education complied with applicable requirements in promulgating the rule.
