Parents Right Summary


Parental Rights Summary July 2015

This is a very brief summary of your rights. In order to assure that you have a full explanation of your rights, you are to receive a copy of the Procedural Safeguards Manual for Parents (Parental Rights in Special Education) at least one time each school year. In addition, you must be given a copy (1) upon an initial referral or your request for evaluation for your child, (2) upon your filing of a first due process complaint or first state complaint in a school year; and (3) whenever a decision is made to take a disciplinary action that constitutes a change of your child’s placement. You also get a copy of the procedural safeguards whenever you ask for one. In addition to your rights, the Procedural Safeguards Manual for Parents lists sources of assistance for parents and outlines special safeguards related to student discipline.
This summary is provided for your convenience and is not a replacement for the Procedural Safeguards Manual for Parents. If there are any differences between the Procedural Safeguards Manual for Parents and this summary, the information and guidance in the Procedural Safeguards Manual for Parents is followed.
