Public Law 94-142, the Education of All Handicapped Children Act (1975); Public Law 101-476, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (1990); and Public Law 105-17, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act Amendments of 1997 require that all disabled students be placed in the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE) in their educational settings; In 1994 the Ninth Circuit Court established the Rachel H. Standard, which provides a guide for school districts in determining the Least Restrictive Environment for their disabled students. All school districts within the authority of the Ninth Circuit must comply with the standard set forth in Sacramento City Unified School District v. Rachel H. 14 F.3d 1398, 1402 (9th Circuit, 1994); The purpose of this study was to identify compliance issues faced by school districts that are members of the Nevada Rural School District Alliance in determining the appropriate placement for their special education students, based on the Rachel H. Standard established by the Ninth Circuit Court.
