Nichole: I requested the records from the letter format provided on page 14 of the idea, and there it says if an ARD meeting is scheduled within 45 days or due process hearing that it can be postponed until I receive the records and understand the records. It also says I can take as much time as I need. I requested the list and just received it however they cancelled the meeting and rescheduled it before I received all of the records. I still haven’t received a couple of things and they told me because it’s an annual ARD and that they do have a deadline, that I have to attend this ARD. I told them I was under the understanding that I had time to review the records.
Is it true that I have to attend annual ARD or do I have the time that I need to review and understand the records?
