On March 22, 2017, the U.S. Supreme Court announced its decision in Endrew F. v. Douglas County School District. This case, coming 35 years after the Supreme Court’s first special education decision in Board of Education of the Hendrick Hudson Central School District v. Rowley (1982), addressed the free appropriate public education (FAPE) requirement of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). Specifically, the High Court answered the question of how much educational benefit public schools are required to provide to students with disabilities eligible for special education in order to confer a FAPE. Chief Justice John Roberts, writing for the unanimous Court, held that to meet its substantive obligation under the IDEA, a school must offer an individualized education program reasonably calculated to enable a child to make progress appropriate in light of the child's circumstances. This presentation will (a) review the Supreme Court’s decision in in Rowley and Endrew, (b) discuss five major takeaways from the decision, and (c) offer recommendations to special education administrators and teachers on developing special education programs that meet the new Endrew standard.
