In 2017, the U.S. Supreme Court held in Endrew F. v. Douglas County School District RE-1 that the “IDEA demands more” and requires providing a level of instruction reasonably calculated to permit advancement through the general curriculum. Where that is not a reasonable expectation, the IEP must be “appropriately ambitious” and provide the child the “chance to meet challenging objectives.” The Court remanded the question of whether the school district in the case had met this newly articulated standard. Last week, in a victory for students with disabilities nationwide, the U.S. District Court in Colorado issued a decision finding that the school district did not provide an adequate education to Endrew and must reimburse the family for his private school tuition. The court noted that the IEP provided by the District “was not appropriately ambitious” under the new standard articulated by the U.S. Supreme Court because it did not provide Endrew with the chance “to meet challenging objectives under his particular circumstances.” The Arc filed amicus briefs in support of the plaintiff at both the Supreme Court and District Court levels.
