Education – Education Department Releases Q&A on Endrew F. v. Douglas County School District Decision

On December 8, the Education Department’s Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services released a “questions and answers” document regarding the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Endrew F. v. Douglas Country School District Re-1. In this decision, the Supreme Court overturned a lower court ruling that students with individualized education plans (IEPs) were entitled only to an education that was “merely more than de minimus” and ruled that an IEP must be “reasonably calculated to enable a child to make progress appropriate in light of the child’s circumstances.” This document will help advocates, parents, students, educators, and other school staff understand how the ruling will impact education.
