Audio Conference At-a-Glance
Thursday, January 26 • 12 – 1:30 p.m. ET Make Sure You’re in the Know: The Latest on IDEA Procedural Safeguards Presented by Art Cernosia, Esq.
Although the IDEA’s procedural safeguards have been a cornerstone of the statute and regulations from their inception, judicial decisions and Department of Education administrative interpretations have resulted in evolving responsibilities for school districts. Courts have overturned eligibility and IEP teams’ decisions based solely on the school’s failure to properly ensure that parents’ procedural safeguards were followed.
Don’t risk exposing your school to legal consequences! Gather your special education staff for plain-language explanations of the numerous IDEA procedural safeguards provided to parents along with an update on must-know legal developments.
You’ll not only leave with a full understanding of what your responsibilities are, but will also gain this experienced attorney’s practical guidance on the compliant way to implement them:
Provide prior written notice for proposed or refused actions
Ensure that a parent’s right to participate is provided and documented
Obtain written consent for the actions required by the IDEA
Discuss alternative ways of resolving disputes when families and schools reach an impasse
