Description

Complicated legal issues arise under the IDEA with respect to educational decisions when parents disagree with each other. A district’s legal obligations to divorced, separated or noncustodial parents are perplexing. Aimed at avoiding procedural missteps, this session provides the pertinent legal authority and, via a case scenario, their application to issues of inter-parent disagreement for issues such as evaluation, eligibility, the IEP process, placement, student records, and filing for due process. For example, may a divorced parent revoke consent for special education when the other parent, who has joint educational custody, insists on the child’s continued eligibility? And, may the parent who does not have joint educational custody independently file for a due process hearing if the custodial parent considers the IEP to be appropriate? Learn the guidance provided by relevant agencies, such as OSEP and OCR, as well as more formal administrative and judicial rulings.
