The U.S. Department of Education recently released a question-and-answer document supporting the unanimous Supreme Court opinion on Endrew F. v. Douglas County School District in March 2017. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA)-related case clarifies the scope of a free appropriate public education (FAPE).

The Department issued the Q&A document to provide information to parents, educators, and others on the issues addressed in the case and the impact of the Court’s decision. The document also explains how FAPE is currently defined, clarifies the standard for determining FAPE, and addresses how this ruling can support children with disabilities.
