FAPE: SHORTENED SCHOOL DAY

Val:  I have a client who receives one hour less of instructional time per day than his non-disabled peers (at his home school). In addition, his guardian stated he receives even less instructional time due to the fact that his bus is at their home each day before school is even supposed to let out, (dismissal is at 2:45 & the guardian claims school is to end at 3PM). She is curious if this is a denial of FAPE.

Students with disabilities are to have the same length day as all students. The IEP team can decide for specific students the regular school day is not appropriate for them. The team should then be working to lengthen the child’s school day.
