Special Schools and Residential Placements

When a parent or IEP team seeks placement in a special school or residential facility, the parent or team must establish that the local school district cannot provide or offer FAPE within its own facilities, and that the residential placement is necessary for the provision of FAPE.  One major hurdle is LRE-a residential placement is a highly restrictive placement, only justified when less restrictive alternatives are not appropriate. Moreover, we have a specific federal regulation that addresses residential placement.
