Proposed Changes to the SPED Eligibility Standards

At the Tennessee Board of Education (BOE) meeting on July 22, 2016, the BOE board voted in favor of making some changes to the eligibility standards. This was the FIRST reading of the action item, and the Tennessee BOE must vote on the changes at a SECOND reading.
Currently, the eligibility standards have NOT changed. However, due to the interest in proposed changes, TASP has provided a link to the proposal as reported on the TN BOE website:
