States Still Required to Implement Equity in IDEA Regulations

In response to the U.S. Department of Education’s decision to file a notice of appeal of the March 7, 2019 judicial decision in COPAA v. DeVos, the Council of Parent Attorneys and Advocates (COPAA) issued the following statement:

COPAA is aware the U.S. Department of Education has filed a notice of appeal in COPAA v. DeVos. We hope this is a procedural measure; COPAA is in the process of learning more. Of course, states are still required to carry out the Equity in IDEA regulations regardless of the legal proceedings and we urge them to come into compliance as required by law. Ideally, the Department will avail themselves to states and provide the technical assistance and support states need as they move forward to help districts with this important undertaking.”
