Informed Consent:  Florida districts are discounting informed consent given as part of a parental letter of initial request for eval (“This letter and my signature to serve as informed consent for evaluation for ESE services under IDEA”), waiting 30 days to give parents the “required district IC form” – which is allowed by state guidelines – up from 20 days as of July 2015 – then starting 60 day timeline from the day their “required form” is signed. Nowhere in IDEA does it state IC must be given in any specific form – is this practice a state sanctioned violation? Per OSEP there’s no form requirement yet they signed off on state regs.
