In order to comply with part B of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), the Bureau of Indian Affairs is revising the sections of the Indian School Equalization Program (ISEP) Exceptional Child Program regulations concerning placement and funding. The changes will ensure that the funding mechanism under the Indian School Education program (ISEP) does not result in placements that violate the requirement of IDEA that special education students are placed in the least restrictive environment possible and that placements are based upon the needs of students, not the funding formula.
