16th ANNUAL EARLY HEARING DETECTION & INTERVENTION MEETING
February 26-28, 2017 • Atlanta, GA
2/27/2017 | 3:20 PM - 3:50 PM | Updates in Federal Education Policy | Hanover B
Federal education policy is always evolving. In the last year we have seen the election of a new president, issuance of regulations around the Every Student Succeeds Act, and Supreme Court interest in implementation of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (for example, Fry v. Napoleon Community Schools, a case about the interplay between IDEA and other laws). Parents, EHDI professionals, and deaf education professionals need to keep up with current events so that they can better advocate for deaf and hard of hearing children. This presentation will describe and explain the potential impact of the latest federal education policy.
- 1. Attendees will be able to identify at least one stated educational priority of the new president.
- 2. Attendees will be able to identify three key provisions of the Every Student Succeeds Act.
- 3. Attendees will be able to identify the question the Supreme Court considered in Fry v. Napoleon Community Schools and how this could affect implementation of IDEA.
