Least Restrictive Educational Environment and

Neighborhood Schools

At each IEP meeting, the team is required to consider a continuum of options for service, beginning with the least restrictive. Their job is to determine which combination of services provides the required benefits with the least restriction in environment.  Federal law requires that the placement be as close to the child’s home, and that the child is educated in the school he or she would attend if he or she did not have a disability, unless the IEP team determines that the child requires some other arrangements.
