Linda: Do IEP meetings have to take place between the hours of 7a.m. and 2:30p.m.? I am of the understanding that IDEA states a mutual time and place.

My daughters school is now refusing to meet with me. I requested for an IEP meeting to cover some concerns I had. The only day I could meet with them was Friday afternoon. School got back to me saying that my daughter’s teacher could not make it because her day ends at 2:30 on Friday and she was not staying. I asked them what day works for them the following week and the response was they met already and decided on her goals and what services she needs for next year. My husband and I were not there and had no input and the school refuses to change the IEP or meeting with us. Tried complaining to the Superintendent and Director or Special Ed but they are of no help. Please help us fight for our daughter.

You are correct. Be sure you have your requests in writing, & document their responses, if they are not in writing. Get the district’s special ed director involved. You can also contact the state education agency.
