Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) and Least Restrictive Environment (LRE)

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) mandates that all students with disabilities receive a FAPE in the LRE. The decisions regarding these two components of the law are to be made based solely on the unique needs of each individual student. Teachers will be a part of this decision making process and must adhere to the requirements of IDEA.
