Filing for Due Process
As the guardian to a child with special needs, you have the right to advocate for your child’s educational success. Indeed, the IEP is a tool to help facilitate and guide your child’s educational needs. But what happens when the IEP is no longer effective, or perhaps the services aren’t being implemented? What do you then? One avenue that might be of interest to you is the Due Process Hearing. This ‘Hearing’ is an administrative remedy and allows one to sue the school district for failing to provide a free and appropriate public education, or being in breach of contract (IEP’s are legally binding contracts).
