Abstract

The Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA) has been instrumental in ensuring that qualified students with disabilities receive a free appro priate public education (FAPE) in the least restrictive environment. Determining the parameters of FAPE, however, has been a daunting task for school personnel and especially for school administrators. Principals find themselves increasingly challenged by a multitude of legal and policy issues regarding special education that are often dif ficult to understand yet necessary to address.
