Considering LRE in Placement Decisions

Least restrictive environment, or LRE as it is more commonly called, is one of several vital components in the development of a child’s IEP and plays a critical role, influencing where a child spends his or her time at school, how services are provided, and the relationships the child develops within the school and community. Indeed, LRE is a foundational element in building an appropriate IEP that can improve outcomes for a child—in school and in life.

Requesting Prior Written Notice

There are times when you, as a parent, may want to communicate in writing with your child’s school about some problem or concern with your child’s education or well-being. Because the Parent’s Guide is so long, we decided it would be more convenient to our readers if each of the letters discussed in the guide was also available separately, to make reading and printing individual letters easier. This page presents a model letter or email you might write to request that the school provide you with prior written notice.

Virtual IEP Meeting Tip Sheets

Meetings to write, review, or revise a child’s IEP typically bring together a team of people who meet in person at least once a year. Now, because of coronavirus, school closures, and social distancing, IEP teams are meeting virtually, either in conference calls or via the Internet. This collection of tip sheets on planning for and participating in virtual meetings was developed collaboratively by six OSEP-funded technical assistance centers, and includes an infographic about virtual IEP meetings (available in English and Spanish); a sample agenda (also available in English and Spanish); technology tips for all participants; suggestions for hosting a virtual meeting; and tips for those participating in a virtual meeting. Read more about (and download) the tip sheets here.
