Operating Standards for the Education of Students with Special Needs – comment due July 31

The Ohio Department of Education is accepting comments on OAC Chapter 3301-51 Education of Students with Special Needs through July 31, 2020. OEA members are encouraged to read the proposed amendment and to submit comments for consideration to the department. The Ohio Education Association has already submitted comments on the proposed amendment. OEA focused its comments on OAC 3301-51-09 Delivery of Services, as this rule affects the teaching conditions of OEA members and the learning conditions of the students OEA members serve. That letter can be found here: ODE 3301-51-09 Letter

Please Note: Any suggestions and comments should be made on state language only. The state language is highlighted in yellow to distinguish between the federal language in each rule. Please include the rule number (e.g. 3301-51-09) in your comments or in the subject line of your email.
