• 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.
