Spotlight on Special Education

HB222 would provide legal advice and help, including investigation, resolution, access to student records, reference for non-compliance actions and protocols, as well as requiring and reviewing annual reports. Interestingly enough, this new office will not be housed under the Public Education Department, but rather the Developmental Disabilities Supports Division (DDSD), which oversees home and community-based Medicaid waiver programs. This placement is purely the result of parents and advocates alike after decades of disappointment and now mistrust of NMPED.
