Federal law requires school districts to notify you of your legal rights as a parent or guardian of a child with a disability.
The procedural safeguards notice must be provided to parents of a student with a disability at a minimum of one time per year and also upon:
- initial referral or parental request for evaluation;
- request by a parent;
- the first filing of a due process complaint notice to request mediation or an impartial due process hearing;
- a decision to impose a suspension or removal that constitutes a disciplinary change in placement; and
- receipt of a parent’s first State complaint in a school year.
