Kelli –

You do have a right to disagree with the Team’s decision. You also have the right to dispute the Team’s decision through a variety of dispute resolution options (notably mediation and due process hearings).

But I think you are asking if your disagreement overrides the Team’s decision, and the answer to this is no.

Again, you do have options if you disagree with the Team’s decision. Independent evaluation is often a good start for this. I encourage you to connect with your local parent center (www.parentcenterhub.org/find-your-center/). They can help you understand the rights that you do have, as well as the options you have when you disagree.
