Endrew F. v. Douglas County School District: Academic Achievement & Students with Disabilities



Date & Time

Start Date: 05/23/2017
Start Time: 1:00 PM ET
End Time: 2:30 PM ET


Kara Kapp, a member of Cozen O'Connor's Commercial Litigation practice, will be speaking at this webinar. The Supreme Court's recent decision in Endrew F. v. Douglas County School District expands the scope of special education students' rights under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), rejecting the "merely more than de minimis" standards set by the Tenth Circuit. The panel of experts will discuss the ruling and its impact, examining what school districts must do to comply with their obligation to provide a free appropriate public education (FAPE) under the IDEA. 

Topics addressed will include:

  • Duty to provide a FAPE under IDEA
  • The new “appropriate progress” standard for IEPs
  • How to apply the standard to real-life situations
  • The ruling and how it relates to the Rowley decision
  • A brief primer on special education law and practice
