INTRODUCTION The purpose of The Green Book . . . ® of Special Education Laws and Regulations, first published in 2015 with a second edition published in 2017, is to offer a single reference tool that contains the current law on both the federal and state level. Specifically, Part I of the book—the federal law—provides the full text of selected provisions of the IDEA, its regulations (and appendices), along with Section 504 and its regulations. Part II contains selected provisions of California statutes directing the provision of special education to students within the state, as well as the regulations issued by the California Department of Education implementing those statutes. We have also included certain provisions of the California Education Code and Code of Regulations applicable to all pupils. Finally, the book also contains an Index to assist in locating and cross-referencing specific provisions of federal and state law. The 2018 supplement contains updates to the 2017 book, taking into account revisions to both the federal and state statutes and regulations (including the 2017 California legislative session) that were enacted, issued or amended since the date of publication. For those statutes and regulations that were amended, the changed provisions appear in bold and are underlined for ease of reference. All changes that appear in this supplement will be incorporated into the next edition of the book, scheduled for release in 2019. It is our sincere hope that the book and supplement help contribute to a better understanding of the laws that govern the provision of education to students with disabilities.
