Special education services are provided in the least restrictive environment in the neighborhood school to the maximum extent appropriate for children with disabilities to be educated with children who are not disabled. City-wide special education services are provided in specific situations when the nature or severity of the disability is such that education in general education classes using supplementary aids and services cannot be achieved satisfactorily.
