It’s a great day when parents and the District are in agreement! Jeremy and Erin follow-up on a conference call where the team wants to be sure the use of a shortened day is compliant with all the special education laws and regulations including FAPE, LRE, and 504. They discuss the importance of making sure everyone at the table has a shared understanding of the child’s disability that is driving the need for a shortened day.
