 Legal Updates

  • Within 3 days of your child’s IEP meeting, your student’s case manager will be sharing their IEP paperwork in advance of the meeting for your review. We will not include paperwork that determines eligibility or educational placement as those are decisions we will make together as an IEP team.

  • Your case manager will plan to email you the IEP documents; however, if you prefer they be mailed, or to pick them up at the school, please let them know in advance.

  • You have the right to review your child's records prior to any IEP meeting.

  • You have the right to request service logs for related services that your child receives. These include dates and times for service in: speech and language services, occupational therapy services, physical therapy services, school social work services, school counseling services, school psychology services, and school nursing services.
