 Co-Teaching and LRE Resources


The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) guarantees students with disabilities the right to be educated with their peers in the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE) to the maximum extent appropriate. IDEA also guarantees students with disabilities access to a full continuum of services and it is up to the IEP team to determine the Least Restrictive Environment for an individual student. The IEP team also determines the supports and accommodations necessary for successful participation in the LRE and other special education services as needed. Training manuals, Frequently Asked Questions Regarding LRE, and a webinar series on effective practices are found below for educators to use in order to build capacity at the local school level. Additional resources will be added as they become available.

Districts have access to the materials the Georgia Learning Resources System (GLRS) included in designing a course entitled “Co-Teaching 201”. These modules go beyond the basics of Co-Teaching provided in the Co-Teaching manuals currently on the website. These can be accessed through the Co-Teaching Modules 201 Introduction link on the right side of this webpage.
