On April 20, 2020, the Illinois State Board of Education (“ISBE”) released updated guidance on special education during the COVID-19 school closures. The updated FAQ guidance reaffirms there is no current flexibility for school districts on IDEA compliance and mandated timelines.

HLERK is in the process of updating our Frequently Asked Questions document for special education and will distribute an updated link later this week. In the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact any of the attorneys in our Students/Special Education Practice Group with questions on providing special education services during Remote Learning Days.
