entitlement

A legal right, typically used when discussing a student's Individual Education Plan, or IEP. Depending on a student's age and where he or she attends school, the student may be legally entitled to services written in the IEP that are provided and/or monitored by the school system. In other cases, a student may be entitled to an IEP, but receiving services is not an entitlement (i.e., services are not guaranteed).
