What is eligibility?

Posted by:

Eligibility is the procedure by which a school-based team determines if the child has a qualifying educational disability as defined by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act of 2004 (IDEA) and the Regulations Governing Special Education Programs for Children with Disabilities in Virginia or requires accommodations under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.  Special education is specially designed instruction provided at no cost to the parent.
