U.S. Department of Education Launches New IDEA Website

by Diane Funsten

The U.S. Department of Education launched a new website dedicated to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).
“The launch of this new and improved site is a big win for children with disabilities, their families and the entire IDEA community,” said Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos. “It is incumbent upon the government to provide accessible and accurate information to our citizens.
“The Department will continue to improve upon the new site by seeking and incorporating feedback from IDEA stakeholders. We are committed to ensuring all children with disabilities and their families have the supports and services guaranteed under the IDEA.”
The new website has improved search capabilities, expanded content and an easy-to-navigate design.
The IDEA is a law that ensures a free appropriate public education to eligible children with disabilities throughout the nation and ensures special education and related services to those children. IDEA stakeholders can provide feedback on the new IDEA website to the Department on the OSERS Blog.
