Letter to Michelson and Mayes
This 2009 letter provides a response to questions about IDEA Part B and American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) guidance around LEA MOE reduction. The letter clarifies that if an LEA is identified as having significant disproportionality, the LEA will not be able to reduce local MOE. See 34 CFR §300.646.
