Rulemaking and Public Comment
The Special Education Section posts notices of any rulemaking activities or public comment opportunities that are specific to state special education.
We invite and encourage participation in the rule making process either through providing written comment or providing public comment, when public hearings are scheduled. Your written or public comments regarding proposed rules improve our efforts in developing final rules.
