January 2017 Legal Update

This month’s update provides the highlights and practical implications of the following two major legal developments:

  1. Court decisions specific to response to intervention (RTI) continue to be limited in number, legal weight, and implementation guidance. A recent decision from Connecticut is a partial exception.
  2. My recent legal update specific to gifted students, published in the current issue of the Journal for Education of the Gifted (v. 39, pp. 315–337), partly overlaps with the law specific to students with disabilities.
