SCOTUSBLOG: Endrew F. v. Douglas County School District 

Holding: To meet its substantive obligation under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, a school must offer an "individualized education program" reasonably calculated to enable a child to make progress appropriate in light of the child's circumstances.

Judgment: Vacated and remanded, 8-0, in an opinion by Chief Justice Roberts on March 22, 2017.

RESPONSE:

Michael Yudin, former Assistant Secretary for Special Education and Rehabilitative Services at the U.S. Department of Education:

"I am pleased that Chief Justice Roberts and the Court unanimously rejected lower court rulings that educational benefit under the IDEA was merely more than de minimus, articulating that such a low standard can hardly be said to have offered children with disabilities an education at all. The Court recognizes that every child should have the chance to meet challenging objectives and advance from grade to grade, and that his or her individualized education program, or IEP, must be appropriately ambitious in light of the child's circumstances."
