Regulations and Legislation
As an educator, it is important that you keep up with any changes in the rules, regulations, and legislation that may affect our students. The Kentucky Department of Education maintains a “Legal and Legislative Services” page http://education.ky.gov/districts/legal/Pages/default.aspx This page has the current links to Kentucky Laws and Regulations, Kentucky School Laws (Annotated Edition and Supplement), and Legal Timelines for School Districts. It is a great way to keep up with these important topics, in both general and special education.
This page also contains a link to the KDE Public Hearing page: http://education.ky.gov/districts/legal/Pages/KDE-Public-Hearing-Information.aspx This page provides current information regarding regulations that are up for public comment. This is your chance to let your voice be heard on the regulations and subjects that impact your students and your field.
