IDEA Legacy Content Will Move to New and Improved IDEA Website

Set your bookmarks to the new IDEA site 

The Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services (OSERS) will automatically redirect users from the Building the Legacy: IDEA 2004 website to the new Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) website starting April 30, 2018.

OSERS launched the new IDEA website in June 2017 in order to provide updated department information regarding IDEA to the public including students, parents/families, educators, service providers, grantees, researchers and advocates. While the Legacy site will redirect users to the new IDEA site, content from the Legacy site is available for reference on the new IDEA website on the "Building the Legacy: IDEA 2004" historical reference page.

IDEA website users are encouraged to bookmark the new IDEA website:

OSERS has made updates to the site based on the feedback it received from stakeholders since the initial launch of the new IDEA website last year. We will continue to gather feedback about the new website in order to enhance and add content, and to ensure the new site remains current.

Stay tuned for video tutorials highlighting features of the new site in the coming months. In the meantime, visit the OSERS Blog if you have feedback regarding the new IDEA website and leave a comment.
