Lisa:  My child missed almost half a year of school due to a surgery and recovery. He has regressed and I want to have him repeat the grade. What are my rights on this? I have an iep meeting later this month.

My daughter has missed the whole 8th grade and she needs to do 8th grade over now. Special ed says they are still letting her go to the 9th grade. What can I do?

The key is that your child get the instruction & support needed to be successful in whatever grade they are in. State this in writing & ask for an IEP meeting to discuss how this will be done in whatever grade she is in. Your state parent training & info center can assist you. http://www.parentcenterhub.org/find-your-center/

Your district or state may have some rules, or policies on this issue. Federal rules do not address this. Your state parent training & information center can assist you. http://www.parentcenterhub.org/find-your-center/
