Donna: The pupil appraisal person excuses herself for a minute during the IEP meeting, then announces to everyone that the meeting will have to be rescheduled until the district’s IEP facilitator can be there. I have worked for a school system (special education) for 36 years and am now a special education advocate. The legal guardian, wrap around service coordinators and other advocates were in attendance. The district had a pupil appraisal representative, teachers (classroom and related), principal, assistant principal attending. It seemed we were making progress in getting some of the guardians concerns addressed and then, out of the blue, the meeting was canceled. What are the laws/guidelines surrounding something like this? Could the guardian have insisted the meeting take place today as scheduled?
