Children with disabilities who attend public charter schools and their parents retain all rights and protections under Part B of IDEA just as they would if the children were enrolled in other public schools.
Students with disabilities have important rights under two federal laws.
- Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA)
- Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Section 504)
In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate, you will learn about the rights of students with disabilities in Charter Schools and the schools legal obligations to provide a free appropriate public education (FAPE).
We hope you will forward this issue to other friends, families, or colleagues.
