7 Children hildren in Virginia Disabilities isabilities with in Virginia FOREWORD. The reauthorization of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act, December 3, 2004, (IDEA. '04) and its implementing federal Regulations , October 13, 2006, prompted the need to revise Virginia's Special Education Regulations . Input was received from a Stakeholders Group that included school personnel, parents, consumers, professionals, and members of the State Special Education Advisory Committee. The Virginia Department of Education adhered to the requirements of Virginia's Administrative Process Act in the development and review of these Regulations .

8 The Virginia Department of Education also relied on the federal Regulations , at 34 CFR (a) and (b) for additional guidance in the formulation of these Regulations . Under this federal mandate, each state shall: 1) Ensure that any State rules, Regulations , and policies relating to the IDEA '04 conform to the requirements of the federal statute and Regulations ;. 2) Identify in writing to local educational agencies located in the State and the Secretary of Education any such rule, regulation, or policy as a State-imposed requirement that is not required by the federal statute and Regulations .

9 And 3) Minimize the number of rules, Regulations , and policies to which the local educational agencies and schools located in the State are subject under the federal statute and Regulations . This federal regulation also requires that State rules, Regulations , and policies under the IDEA '04 shall support and facilitate local educational agency and school-level system improvement designed to enable children with disabilities to meet the challenging State student achievement standards. The Regulations were adopted by the Board of Education on May 28, 2009, and became effective on July 7, 2009.

10 The Regulations were reissued on January 25, 2010, following technical amendments. The Regulations include reference to the federal Regulations , state statute, or state Regulations that serve as the source of the requirements. The Department of Education staff members are grateful to those persons who provided comment. Copies of these Regulations , including Braille copies, audio tapes, and large print versions are available at no cost from the Virginia Department of Education . Please forward your request to the Virginia Department of Education , P.
