581-015-2250. Placement of the Child

School districts must ensure that:

(1) The educational placement of a child with a disability:

(a) Is determined by a group of persons, including the parents, and other persons knowledgeable about the child, the meaning of the evaluation data, and the placement options;

(b) Is made in conformity with the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE) provisions of OAR 581-015-2240 to 581-015-2255.

(c) Is based on the child's current IEP;

(d) Is determined at least once every 365 days; and

(e) Is as close as possible to the child's home;

(2) The alternative placements under OAR 581-015-2245 are available to the extent necessary to implement the IEP for each child with a disability;

(3) Unless the child's IEP requires some other arrangement, the child is educated in the school that he or she would attend if not disabled;

(4) In selecting the least restrictive environment, consideration is given to any potential harmful effect on the child or on the quality of services which he or she needs; and

(5) A child with a disability is not removed from education in age-appropriate regular classrooms solely because of needed modifications in the general curriculum.
