The law is clear. Parents have the right to participate in the meeting when their child's IEP is developed.
- Has your school held an IEP meeting when you were not able to attend?
- If there are scheduling conflicts for an IEP meeting, whose attendance has priority?
You are an equal IEP team participant.
Your participation holds equal weight with other information presented and considered.
In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate you will learn the Court's decision in a landmark case about parent participation at IEP meetings. Parent attendance must take priority over attendance of other team members.
We hope you will forward this issue to other friends, families, or colleagues.
