     Free and Appropriate Public Education


    Under federal law, students who are eligible for special education are entitled to a FREE, APPROPRIATE, PUBLIC EDUCATION – This concept is known as “FAPE.” The FAPE standard for special education services requires the school district to provide instruction tailored to the individual student’s needs, with sufficient support services to assist the student to make meaningful educational progress. Any special education services identified for the student are required to be provided at public expense with no cost to the parent.
