IGBAE - Special Education - Participation in Regular Education Programs
Adopted: 8/13/97, 10/11/00, 8/24/04
The district ensures that to the maximum extent appropriate, students with disabilities, including students in public or private institutions or other care facilities, are educated with students who are nondisabled.
Special classes, separate schooling or other removal of students with disabilities from the regular educational environment occurs only if the nature or severity of the disability is such that education in regular classes with the use of supplementary aids and services cannot be achieved satisfactorily. A child with a disability is not removed from education in age-appropriate regular classrooms solely because of needed modifications in the general curriculum.
