On March 22, 2017 the U.S. Supreme Court issued a unanimous opinion in Endrew F. v. Douglas County School District. In that case, the Court redefined the free appropriate public education (FAPE) requirements in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). This training series will provide an overview of the decision and provide LEAs with support to develop capacity among their special education staff to meet the more rigorous standard for IEP quality set forth by Endrew F.
In the first part of the series, participants will:
- Identify legal requirements related to IEP development
- Identify and apply key concepts of IEP development, focusing on student assessment, as well as analysis, interpretation, and reporting of student assessment results
- Practice using data to draft individualized PLAAFP statements that comply with legal requirements
- Create internal protocols that support effective student assessment and IEP development practices
Space is limited and registration is required.
