On September 30, 2021, The U.S. Department of Education (USDOE), Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Service, issued an updated guidance interpreting the requirements of the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA) in light of the many challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, as schools have returned to in-person services. 

Topics include meeting timelines, initial evaluation and reevaluation procedures, determining eligibility for special education and related services, and providing the full array of special education and related services that children with disabilities need in order to receive a free appropriate public education (FAPE).
