The "Individuals with Disabilities in Education Act" is a federal initiative which guarantees access to the general education curriculum for all students, regardless of their abilities or disabilities. Special Education eligibility and service provision for disabled students is clearly defined by both state statutes and federal regulations. The goal is to have every child educated in the least restrictive environment in which effective progress can be made, while ensuring the student's access to a Free and Appropriate Public Education (FAPE).
