Grants Available to Improve Educational Opportunities for Children with Disabilities; Deadline is February 11, 2008
01/31/2008

The Department of Education's Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services (OSERS) recently announced the availability of a grant to improve long-term planning for children with disabilities through multi-year Individualized Education Programs (IEP). An IEP is the cornerstone of a quality education for each child with a disability and creates an opportunity for teachers, parents, school administrators and students to work together to improve results.

This grant program is designed to provide an opportunity for states to allow parents and local educational agencies to engage in long-term planning by offering the option of developing a comprehensive multi-year IEP, not to exceed three years, that is designed to coincide with the natural transition points for children. The deadline for applications is February 11, 2008.
