Santa Monica Court Litigations

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.

Some Santa Monica students require modifications to their education, learning at lower levels than their peers do. Others need accommodations in the classroom or when testing to make up for certain disabilities. Still others need special services, such as tutoring or transportation to get them the best possible education and to put them on the road to success later in life. All of these needs should be discussed and resolved upon in the IEP meeting. However, if they do not, Santa Monica court litigations can sometimes arise.
