Representative Mark Green Protects Schools from Unnecessary Lawsuits During National Coronavirus Emergency

 

U.S. house of RepresentativesWashington, D.C. – Today, Tuesday, March 24th, 2020,  Representative Mark Green sent a letter to Senators Mitch McConnell and Chuck Schumer urging them to waive the requirements of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) in Congress’ coronavirus relief legislation and and give school districts more time to implement proper protocols given the extraordinary circumstances of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Representative Green said, “Secretary DeVos needs this waiver authority during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Without a waiver, school districts will be in violation, and costly litigation will occur against States and districts who operate in good faith to provide services to their communities.”
