Free Appropriate Public Education

  • Anna ISD provides a Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) for students with disabilities in order to meet the need for special education and related services.  FAPE must be provided in the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE) appropriate for the student with primary consideration given to the general education classroom and curriculum.  Decisions regarding the provision of FAPE are made through the ARD process.  

Accommodations and Modifications

  • The ARD Committee determines the necessary accommodations and modifications needed for each student to receive FAPE.  Accommodations are changes in how a student accesses instruction and demonstrates learning.  Modifications are changes in what a student is expected to learn.  For examples and more information, check out one of the websites linked below.
