Framingham Public Schools provides a broad array of services for children and youth identified with disabilities from the ages of three through twenty-two. State and federal special education laws and regulations, namely The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), govern the referral, evaluation and placement procedures. Framingham Public Schools is committed to the goal of providing an appropriate education for students with needs in the least restrictive environment.

Contents address special education services and criteria for our students with disabilities and is designed for community members, parents, students, administrators, general education teachers, special education teachers, other service providers and paraprofessionals.
