2014 Ohio Operating Standards for the Education of Children with Disabilities

8/29/2014

The revised Ohio Operating Standards for the Education of Children with Disabilities became effective on July 1, 2014. The Office for Exceptional Children has provided a brief Summary of Changes to the Ohio Operating Standards for the Education of Children with Disabilities. For the complete rule text, refer to the Ohio Operating Standards for the Education of Children with Disabilities or the Ohio Administrative Code.

Procedures and guidance are being updated and will be posted as they become available. In the meantime, refer to both the Ohio Operating Standards for the Education of Children with Disabilities and existing guidance documents and memorandums. Updated parent notice of procedural safeguards (Whose IDEA is This?) will be released during the 2014-15 school year. In the interim, Whose IDEA is This? (April 2, 2012), with the required Addendum (January 21, 2014), serves as required parent notice of procedural safeguards. Revised special education forms will be in effect for the 2015-16 school year.
