New MN Law Supporting Students Post-Pandemic

Many students with Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) have experienced gaps in their services and/ or have not been able to make meaningful progress toward their IEP goals because of the impacts of COVID. Federal and State laws have been passed to help make up for these educational losses and the lack of access to a free appropriate public education (FAPE).
