DWK’s Sarah Sutherland was a panelist for the “CSBA Legal Update: Special Education: Interventions, Least Restrictive Environment & Costs” webcast.

This installment of Legal Update focuses on special education law and the issues school governance teams may be facing at the district level in the areas of interventions, least restrictive environment, assessments, and the factors contributing to the rising costs of special education. A panel of school attorneys delve into:

  • The meaning of a Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) since the Supreme Court Case of Endrew F.
  • Mainstreaming students into the general education classroom versus the Least Restrictive Environment
  • Assessments and identification of students, and how the Every Student Succeeds Act and the Local Control and Accountability Plan tie into interventions
  • What is contributing to the rising costs of special education
