Consent: SCHOOL CHANGED IEP WITHOUT PARENTS AGREEING

Robert:  What options do parents have when a school changes their child’s IEP, and places them in a SPED room for the entire morning, and in the regular class in the afternoon. The child’s IEP did not have them in a SPED room for years, but mainstreamed. The school did this because they did not follow the IEP (provide certified and qualified people to work with them, ABA Shadow, etc.). Would a state complaint work? OCR complaint work? Or can the IEP only be changed by due process if the school refuses to change the IEP? The school even told us to go to another school. Thank you for your help in advance.

I agree with Chuck, and would like to add:

Basically you are advocating for Least Restrictive Environment (LRE). LRE cases are relatively high priority for pro bono legal services — you may want to see if you can get them.

You may want to give mediation a try. In my state that can be done as part of a state special ed complaint.

You may want to join a parents’ group, or form one, to advocate for greater levels of inclusion in your district. In my experience, THREE unrelated, concerned parents meeting with an administrator gives the impression of a MOVEMENT.

State complaint – yes. OCR complaint – probably not. Request for due process hearing – yes. State complaint & due process hearing request can be made at same time. Your state parent training & information center can assist you. http://www.parentcenterhub.org/find-your-center
