Investigation Finds ‘No Evidence’ Of Discrimination Against Students In Special Ed
[Source: Indy Star]
A federal investigation into the Indiana Department of Education over the concerns that students with disabilities were being denied equal access to education during the COVID-19 pandemic has been dismissed.
The U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights said, in a letter issued Friday to Indiana Secretary of Education Katie Jenner, it has no evidence that IDOE is currently discriminating against students with disabilities and that it did not have sufficient, specific information that IDOE was denying students with disabilities equal access to educational programs, discriminating against students with disabilities, or “acting in a manner inconsistent with its obligations” at the time the investigation was opened.
