LEAST RESTRICTIVE ENVIRONMENT AND INCLUSION
BINGHAMTON — Lawyer Patrick Radel will discuss state and federal regulations regarding educating students at the “Least Restrictive Environment and Inclusion” workshop” from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 11, at the Broome-Tioga Workforce office at 171 Front St. in Binghamton. According to a media release, inclusion of students with disabilities in general education settings will also be covered. Radel is with the Utica law firm of Getnick, Livingston, Atkinson and Priore.
LRE is part of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. IDEA states that children who receive special education should learn in the least restrictive environment. That means they should spend as much time as possible with peers who do not receive special education.
Sponsored by Oneonta’s Family Resource Network, registration for the workshop is required and may be completed online at https://forms.gle/XjHR9hC11HoWiJBu7.
