The District 204 delivery model of special education services is called "supported education" or "inclusion."
The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), originally signed into law in 1975 by President Ford, represented a national commitment to provide free, appropriate public education for students with disabilities. IDEA requires public school districts to educate students with disabilities in the least restrictive environment. This is accomplished via school personnel (in cooperation with parents) choosing from a number of options along a continuum in best meeting student individual needs.
Fry School and District 204 is dedicated to meeting the needs of all learners. Special Education questions may be directed to Mrs. Laurie Schuh, Student Service Coordinator.
