On December 3, 2004, President Bush signed the reauthorized Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEA) into law. Most provisions of the new law take effect on July 1, 2005. The purpose of IDEA is to insure that all children with disabilities have available to them a free appropriate public education that emphasizes special education and related services designed to meet their unique needs and prepare them for further education, employment, and independent living.(IDEA; 20 U.S.C. 1400 (d) Purposes).
North Bend School District is committed to insuring that all students receive a quality education. For more information, please contact the District Special Education Director.
