Parent Rights

Families have a right to:

  • A full evaluation of your child’s needs. If you don’t agree with what the evaluation team determines, you can obtain an independent evaluation.
  • Receive 10-day prior written notice of Individual Education Plan (IEP) meetings.
  • Participate in IEP meetings and help develop your child’s IEP.
  • Invite to IEP meetings others with knowledge or specific expertise about your child. For example, this person could be another parent, a teacher, a family member, or a friend.
  • Give and revoke consent for identification, initiation, and significant change of services.
  • Receive notice about minor changes in services or placement.
  • Be informed of your child’s progress.
  • Examine your child’s records and consent to release of those records.
  • Privacy of information. 
  • Pursue due process in order to protect procedural safeguards.
