Over the decades, many laws have been made on both the federal as well as the state levels to ensure that all Santa Monica children are given the best possible educations within the local school district. In the United States, all children have access to free public education, and this includes Santa Monica special education students. Several laws guarantee this right with the most well-known federal law being IDEA or the Individuals with Disabilities Act. IDEA designates that special education students should receive FAPE, which is a free and appropriate public education. The term “appropriate” means that the education should be designed around this student’s unique needs and requirements.
