On March 22, 2017, the U.S. Supreme Court issued its ruling in Endrew F. v. Douglas County School District. The case was the second special education case heard before the High Court to address the issue of what constitutes a Free Appropriate Public Education under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA)
The question in this case was how much educational benefit does a student’s program of special education need to provide to that student? Chief Justice John Roberts, writing for the unanimous Court, held that to meet its substantive obligation under IDEA, a school must offer an individualized education program reasonably calculated to enable a child to make progress appropriate in light of the child's circumstances.
