CARES Act Equitable Services Interim Final Rule Vacated – Now What?

September 23, 2020

1:00 pm EST


Course Description:

On Friday, September 4th, a D.C. District Court judge vacated the Interim Final Rule from the U.S. Department of Education on providing equitable services under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. This means that ED’s interim final rule is not enforceable. However, this brings about more questions than answers. Can SEAs and LEAs continue to use the various methodology options under the IFR? Must LEAs recalculate their proportionate share? What about expenditures already made? May all teachers and students continue to be served? This virtual training will review the applicable court cases, discuss the consequences of the decisions, and provide recommendations and best practices in light of the legal standards and defenses for moving forward.
