1. He cited and linked to the Iowa Department of Education's COVID-19 and IDEA web page.
2. The final sentence...
"Rather than emotion-laden legalism, the key factors during this unusual crisis start with health/safety and, within this overriding consideration, what is essential and what is practicable."
