Least Restrictive Environment

  • Students with disabilities are to be provided with an education in the least restrictive environment possible. To the maximum extent appropriate, students with disabilities should be educated with non-disabled students.
    Special Classes or Schools

    Students with disabilities who require special classes or separate schooling are placed in those environments only if the nature and severity of their disability is such that education in general classes with supplementary aids and services cannot be achieved satisfactorily.

    The student should be provided with an education as close as possible to the child's home and in the school he/she would attend if he/she did not have disabilities, unless the IEP requires some other arrangement.
