Least Restrictive Environment
What is " least restrictive environment" (LRE)?

The Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA) guarantees students with disabilities the right to be educated with their non disabled peers in the general education classroom to the maximum extent possible.

Separate schools, special classes, or the removal of a student with disabilities from the regular education classroom environment occurs only if the nature or severity of the child's disabilities is such that education in the general education classroom setting with the use of supplementary aids and services cannot be achieved satisfactorily.

The IEP committee, which includes parents, students (when applicable), and educators determines the educational placement for each student.
