Troy R. Justesen, acting director of the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) for the Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services (OSERS), U.S. Department of Education, would like to share with you an important message about a series of topic briefs regarding the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004 (IDEA). In response to public inquiry about the recently reauthorized Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004 (IDEA), and prior to issuing final regulations, OSERS is taking steps to assist in the explanation of the statutory language.  To be as responsive as possible to families, educators and administrators, OSERS has developed and posted to its Web site a series of topic briefs regarding several high-interest areas of IDEA 2004.  These topic briefs include a summary of all relevant statutory language for 19 topics ranging from Highly Qualified Teachers to Discipline, with citations from the law and cross-references, when applicable, to related briefs.  Additionally, visitors to the IDEA 2004 Web page can view news and information concerning proposed regulations, public meetings, consideration of comments and suggestions, laws and policies, and technical assistance related to the reauthorized law.These resources are at https://www2.ed.gov/policy/speced/guid/idea/idea2004.html
