If a teacher is not appropriately credentialed or qualified to be educating children with unique needs it can lead to a subsequent denial of a student's access to a Free and Appropriate Public Education (FAPE).
To explain further, if an IEP team has specifically determined that a student requires the support of a Special Day Class for example; and subsequently the classroom in which that student is placed does not have a teacher with the ability to successfully teach that class based upon inappropriate credentials or qualifications, it is likely that the District is then not providing that student with access to a FAPE.
