ACCESS TO GENERAL CURRICULUM
In accordance with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act of 2004, schools are responsible for providing students who are receiving special education services the opportunity to participate in school through the least restrictive environment. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act requires that students with disabilities have access to the general curriculum, be involved in the general curriculum, and progress in the general curriculum.
Region 17 Education Service Center provides technical assistance and professional development opportunities for administrators, teachers (general and special education), counselors, paraprofessionals, parents, and other stakeholders to identify strategies to address the unique needs of students receiving special education services. We provide guidance for school districts and charter schools in the following areas.
