Ohio's System of General Supervision

In October, 2016, Ohio updated its General Supervision document, which outlines the State’s system of general supervision that monitors school district implementation of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) of 2004.

Using this system of general supervision, states are accountable for enforcing requirements and ensuring continuous improvement. This system is comprised of nine key components and is designed to: a) ensure compliance with federal and state regulations and b) improve services and results for students with disabilities

USDOE Issues Letters of Significant Guidance

Periodically the United States Department of Education (USDOE) issues letters that are determined to be significant guidance. While the letters are non-binding and do not create new legal requirements, the information is intended to assist states and public school districts in meeting obligations under federal regulatory requirements. Three letters determined by USDOE to be significant guidance were issued in summer regarding students with disabilities.
