The rulemaking process is an opportunity for interested stakeholders and the general public to provide input to DVR on its policies and procedures. The workshops are a chance for you to be heard! You can also get involved by reviewing and commenting on the draft rules.

DVR has published a Notice of Rulemaking Development and announced six rule workshop events. DVR has also distributed 19 draft rules (numbered 6A-25.001-6A-25.019). The draft rules are about important topics such as informed choice, application processes, assessments for eligibility and priority, individualized plans for employment, confidentiality, case closure, and procedures for the right to administrative review. Written comments to the draft rules can be submitted via this FLDOE link. For more information, you can also contact Brent McNeal, Assistant General Counsel, Department of Education, 2002 Old St. Augustine Road, Building A, Tallahassee, FL 32301-4962, (850)245-3327.
