"Public Act" - Information for Students with IEPs

Initiative Description

IATP worked with the disability organization and sponsors to encourage the passing of Public Act 102-0841 which amends the school code by requiring local districts to provide parent's and guardians of students with IEPs informational materials about the Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) account program at the student's annual individualized education program (IEP) review meeting whether it is held in person, remotely or another manner.

Lessons Learned/Replication

The materials are being prepared by the Office of the State Treasurer for delivery to the State Board of Education, which will distribute the materials to school districts throughout Illinois for implementation starting in the 2023-24 school year.
