Your Student’s Right to Compensatory Education

Resource Type:
Focus Area:

If your child with a disability has been denied needed educational services required by law, your student is entitled to make-up educational services, or compensatory education.

Compensatory education is meant to put a student in the same position they would be in if the school had provided appropriate special education and supports in the first place. Because of that, compensatory education is highly individualized and broadly flexible to the needs of your student.
