Do you know where you can easily find policy and regulatory information about Special Education?
There is an online database for state and federal special education documents called the Michigan Special Education Reference (MI-SER). The Michigan Department of Education (MDE), Office of Special Education (OSE) oversees the MI-SER as part of its commitment to better serve its stakeholders.
