Florida Special Education Law Attorneys

Charter schools can encounter issues with special education requirements just the same as school district schools can. The IDEA requires that charter schools provide a free and appropriate public education (FAPE) in the least restrictive environment (LRE) at no cost to the parent where the charter school is the most appropriate placement for the child. Our attorneys help schools operate in compliance with these requirements, obtain funding to maintain such programs and services, and mediate or litigate disputes.

A child's education and equal opportunities for education are important to the community, to the education system, to his or her family and to his or her future.

At Arnold Law Firm, we help charter schools throughout Florida comply with state and federal statutes, regulations, school district policies and other obligations they have relating to students with disabilities, learning difficulties and/or special learning processes. Students with such issues often have individual education plans (IEP) or Section 504 Plans, which must be followed by schools and educators. Parents are very concerned with these issues, and we work to promote a collaborative process to achieve the best interests of all parties involved.

We are counselors, advisers, mediators and litigators. We work for practical, collaborative solutions to disputes before resorting to administrative proceedings or other litigation. Cost-effective, agreeable and practical solutions are often better for all parties involved, financially, emotionally and for expedient resolution.
