Join us for this free workshop where two area attorneys representing those involved with students with disabilities, will discuss and answer questions regarding the recent Endrew F. v. Douglas County School District Supreme Court decision in which the Court ruled against a bare minimum standard for an appropriate education and decided that the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires schools to offer an Individualized Education Program (IEP ) “appropriately ambitious” in light of the child’s circumstances.

Parents, school personnel, Board of Education members, service providers, educational advocates and the general community are all encouraged to attend to better understand perspectives to improve outcomes for students with disabilities.

Seating is limited.

Registration is required by Tuesday, 3/13/18.
