Parents of children with disabilities have just been empowered by a unanimous United States Supreme Court to demand more of their school district. The recent Supreme Court decision in Endrew F. v. Douglas County School District, clarifies what it means for districts to provide a Free and Appropriate Public Education (“FAPE”). For decades, some districts have argued students only need to make “some” progress which is “merely more than de minimis.”

However, according to the Supreme Court, “The IDEA demands more. It requires an educational program reasonably calculated to enable a child to make progress appropriate in light of the child’s circumstances.”

In this 60 minute webinar, the attorneys of Hinkle, Fingles, Prior & Fischer will discuss what this important victory means and what parents should know going into their next IEP meeting. Common “red flags” of minimal progress will be reviewed. The presenters will also discuss possible remedies for students whose past IEPs have not allowed them to make progress.

This webinar is being offered free of charge.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.”
