On April 28, 2015, regulations for Part B of IDEA were amended—specifically, the requirements governing MOE (maintenance of effort). The new rule requires LEAs to spend at least as much on special education as they did the prior year, details what happens if an LEA fails to do so, spells out what the MOE will be for the year following a failure, and provides 4 clear exceptions to the requirement that LEAs maintain their fiscal support for special education.
