Legislation & Policy

Legislation and resulting policies shape much of the work done in education. Practitioners, family members and students are all influenced by various national and local policies.

The Legislation and Policy Category provides information and resources for school professionals, students and families regarding federal and state level policies affecting students with disabilities. The information in this category is divided into the following two sections:

  • Federal describes the federal indicators that measure a state's implementation of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and related governmental reports on secondary transition.
  • State describes state legislation as well as transition education activities occurring at the state-level.
