What do FAPE and LRE mean?

School districts are obligated to provide a free appropriate public education (FAPE) in the least restrictive environment (LRE). This means the IEP team considers, to the maximum extent appropriate, to educate your child with students without disabilities. Special education is a set of services, not a specific place. For many students, the general education classroom is the appropriate setting, but depending upon the student's needs, a range of options is available, including special education classes.

About AEAs
Iowa Area Education Agencies (AEAs) were created in 1974 by the Iowa legislature to ensure equal educational opportunities for all children from birth through age 21. As regional service agencies, AEAs provide special education and school improvement services for students, families, teachers, administrators, and their communities.
