    Endrew F. V. Douglas County School District (2017): What The Ruling Means For IEP Teams

    The U.S. Supreme Court’s special education ruling in the 2017 case, Endrew F. v. Douglas County School District, is having important effects on special education, including the development of students’ individualized education programs (IEP). In this presentation, Dr. Yell will first summarize the Endrew case and how it effects the primary obligation of special education teachers and administrators, which is to confer a free appropriate public education (FAPE). Next, Dr. Yell will examine how IEP teams can develop educationally meaningful and legally sound IEPs that meet the Endrew standard. Finally, Dr. Yell will address the special case of developing behavioral IEPs.
