Special Education Guidance for COVID-19
Although the spirit of the federal special education regulations is that parents and schools will arrive at a consensus, sometimes conflict arises. The Office of Dispute Resolution offers options for parents and schools to address and resolve these special education conflicts.
Parents and school staff are encouraged to communicate and work together to reach an agreement that is in the best interest of the child. Parents may also request in writing that the school reconvene the IEP team to discuss concerns.
To get help in finding a mutual agreement or if problems persist, contact the school and ask to speak with the special education coordinator or special education director.
