In advance, thanks for your consideration.
PLEASE go to ieanea.org and click on "act to oppose proposed special ed changes" to read about the "sunsetting" of the 70/30 special education rule and to ACT NOW. They have public comment open until Monday, April 22nd, then the ISBE is going to vote NOT to continue the law requiring regular education classrooms to have 70% of students be non-IEP'd students. At the IEA-RA, they encouraged each of us to write a separate personal letter saying how the change would affect our students.
Letting this rule "sunset" ALSO removes the cap on special education class size!
We currently we have ten people signed up for IEA Lobby Day in Springfield on May 15th. The deadline to sign up for the bus is this Friday. Many new laws that impact education and teachers are about will be voted on in the coming weeks. Get on the bus. Please email Jerry Mulvihill by Friday at 3:30 if you are interested.
