Special Education services for disabled students are a guaranteed right under the Federal Individuals with Disabilities in Education Act (IDEA). The Department of Education website hosts invaluable information regarding the rights of students to access the general curriculum and the responsibilities of school districts to adhere to due process. The responsibility to adhere to all Department of Elementary and Secondary Education laws, initiatives and advisories falls upon the Administrator of Special Education in each district.
Parental involvement is critical to the process of providing special education services to students. The Department of Education not only encourages, but requires parental involvement in order to enter a child into special education, and at all decision making TEAM meetings.
