Least Restrictive Environment (LRE)
To the maximum extent appropriate, students with disabilities must be educated with students without disabilities. This is
called the least restrictive environment (LRE). The IEP team determines the placement that is the LRE for the student based on
consideration of all of the following factors: 1) the educational needs of the student, 2) opportunities for education with age
appropriate peers, 3) education in the school that the student would attend if not a student with a disability, and 4) any potential
harmful effect of the placement on the student, the quality of services that the student needs or on other students.
The student should not be removed from the general education classroom solely because of needed accommodations or
modifications in the general curriculum. Removal from the general education environment occurs only if the nature or severity of the
disability is such that education in general education classes with the use of supplementary aids and services cannot be achieved
