EDUCATION

Children with disabilities are entitled to a school program that will meet their educational needs. Special education programs are governed by a combination of state and federal laws. Under these laws, school districts must provide each student with a disability with a free appropriate public education (FAPE). FAPE means that special education and related services that are provided at public expense and without charge must meet appropriate standards, include preschool through secondary education, and conform to an Individual Education Program (IEP). A student that qualifies for educational services must be provided these accommodations in the least restrictive environment.

Below are some links that will provide information about the educational rights of those with disabilities.
