Legal Guidelines

Special education services are required and described by the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, which was reauthorized in 2004. On the state level, special education services are governed by the Indiana Administrative Code, commonly referred to as “Article 7” was reauthorized in August 2008. The cornerstone of both federal and state law is that each student with a disability is entitled to a free appropriate public education (FAPE). This means that special education and related services are to be provided to students with disabilities at no cost to the parent, in conformity with an individualized education program (IEP) that complies with federal and state requirements, in the least restrictive environment (LRE) and in such a manner that provides the student with equal opportunity to participate in services and activities that are available to all students.
