Saturday, November 02, 2019 1:11 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

October 31,2019  an amendment was placed on Senate Bill 460, Amendment 1, that delays specific provisions of the original House Bill 3586 and makes RTI permissive.  It passed out of committee and passed unanimously in the Senate.   Please see the description of this bill below.  This bill replaces the language of SB 2283.

 

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Children with Disabilities Article of the School Code. Delays until July 1, 2020 the requirement that, no later than 3 school days prior to a child's individualized education program eligibility meeting or meeting to review a child's individualized education program, or as soon as possible if an individualized education program meeting is scheduled within 3 school days with the written consent of the child's parent or guardian, the local education agency must provide the child's parent or guardian with copies of all written material that will be considered by the individualized education program team at the meeting so that the parent or guardian may participate in the meeting as a fully-informed team member. Provides that a school district may (rather than must) utilize response to scientific, research-based intervention or multi-tiered systems of support as part of an evaluation procedure to determine if a child is eligible for special education services due to a specific learning disability. Effective immediately.
