IDEA � Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004

IDEA is federal legislation that mandates that students with physical, mental, emotional, and learning disabilities (ages birth to 21) receive a Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE), while also protecting these students from discrimination, within the general learning environment with typical peers to the greatest extent possible. Students with IEPs have all the rights and benefits of those covered under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. In addition, students eligible under IDEA are entitled to an Individual Education Plan (IEP) designed to meet the student’s unique educational needs as well as enable the student to receive educational benefit.
