Webinar: Preschool LRE & Continuum of Placements

March 26, 2020

The Least Restrictive Environment (LRE) requirements of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) apply to all children with disabilities who are served under Part B of the IDEA, including preschool children.  South Carolina Department of Education (SCDE) staff have worked with Head Start, First Steps, Office of the Child Care Administrator and other state level partners to develop guidance that supports LEAs to build a preschool continuum of alternative placements for young students with disabilities.  Join Dr. Jenny May, the preschool contact at the SCDE Office of Special Education Services, on Thursday March 26th at 3:00pm as she shares examples and non-examples of a preschool continuum of placements, supplementary supports, and resources to facilitate braided funding at the district-level.
