Amended California Special Education Regulations In Effect

July 11, 2014 | Bulletin No. 1127495.1

Nearly 14 years after President Bush signed the IDEA Improvement Act of 2004, special education regulations found in the California Code of Regulations, title 5, sections 3001-3088, have been updated and became effective July 1, 2014.  The revisions align what the California Department of Education ("CDE") has referred to as "old, out-of-date regulations" with existing state statutes and federal statutes and regulations. The new regulations were finalized after a period of public comment and the holding of a public hearing on July 8, 2013 at the CDE.

June 11, 2014 | Bulletin No. 1117712.1

In a much anticipated and well-publicized tentative ruling, the Los Angeles Superior Court (“trial court”) issued a tentative ruling on June 6, 2014 in Vergara v. State of California, Case. No. BC484642.  Plaintiffs in the case were nine California public school students who claimed five education code statutes were unconstitutional.  These "challenged statutes"  dealing with teacher tenure and dismissal are Education Code sections 44929.21 ("teacher tenure statute"); 44934, 44938(b)(1) and (2) and 44944 ("dismissal statutes"); and 44955, the layoff statute, which the trial court identified as "Last-in-First Out ('LIFO')."
