Barbara: I am a special education teacher as well as a parent of a child who is served in the special education program. Our county uses the state online IEP program, and as a team member I have always been able to view my child’s IEP online because I have access to the program through my job. His new case manager has removed me as a team member, saying it was a conflict of interest. I only opened his IEP in the past when I could not remember what was written in it (ex:accommodations) and didn’t have a hard copy at school with me. Is it legal to leave me off as a team member, is it a conflict of interest because I can view his online IEP because of my position as a special education teacher?
