This overview of the Educational Benefit Review Process will guide families in using this hands‐on protocol to help determine if a student's IEPs were "reasonably calculated" for him/her to achieve educational benefit. The experience is designed to assist educators in making informed decisions about how their students' education will ready them for college, career, and life.
This session explores:
- the concept of "educational benefit" as set out by the Supreme Court in Board of Education v. Rowley (1982);
- the quality of IEPs that are likely to result in educational benefit;
- the alignment of all IEP elements needed to create a comprehensive and cohesive educational program; and
- how to use the Educational Benefit protocol to become a more active participant in the PPT/IEP process.
Participants will examine a student's IEPs for a three-year period to determine if they resulted in educational benefit for the student.
**Participants should bring a copy of their child's most recent IEP**
These sessions are offered free of charge to participants thanks to funding from the CSDE Bureau of Special Education.
