Endrew F. Question and Answer Document

In March of this year the U.S. Supreme Court issued a unanimous decision in Endrew F. v. Douglas County School District Re-1. In this decision, the court held that “to meet its substantive obligation under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), a school must offer [a child] an IEP [individualized education program] reasonably calculated to enable a child to make progress appropriate in light of the child’s circumstances.”

What impact will this Supreme Court decision have on the implementation of IDEA? The U.S. Department of Education seeks to answer this question (and many others) in the Q&A document just released (December 7, 2017). It reviews the facts and findings of Endrew F., discusses how the Supreme Court decision clarifies the standard for determining FAPE and educational benefit to children with disabilities, and explores considerations for implementation.
