Placement of the Child


School districts must ensure that:

(1)

The educational placement of a child with a disability:

(a)

Is determined by a group of persons, including the parents, and other persons knowledgeable about the child, the meaning of the evaluation data, and the placement options;

(b)

Is made in conformity with the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE) provisions of OAR 581-015-2240 (Requirement for Least Restrictive Environment) to 581-015-2255 (Nonacademic Settings).

(c)

Is based on the child’s current IEP;

(d)

Is determined at least once every 365 days; and

(e)

Is as close as possible to the child’s home;

(2)

The alternative placements under OAR 581-015-2245 (Alternative Placements and Supplementary Aids and Services) are available to the extent necessary to implement the IEP for each child with a disability;

(3)

Unless the child’s IEP requires some other arrangement, the child is educated in the school that he or she would attend if not disabled;

(4)

In selecting the least restrictive environment, consideration is given to any potential harmful effect on the child or on the quality of services which he or she needs; and

(5)

A child with a disability is not removed from education in age-appropriate regular classrooms solely because of needed modifications in the general curriculum.
