Procedural Safeguards

Before every IEP meeting, the school team offers parents a copy of the procedural safeguards. You have the right to decline their copy, and you also have the right to receive them in your dominant language. Many parents joke that after years of IEP meetings, they could wallpaper their house with them!

All joking aside, the procedural safeguards are meant to inform parents of their rights within the IEP process. They discuss things like how to resolve disputes with the district, how the assessment process works, and when your consent is needed. They can look daunting, but it’s important to read through them every once in a while to make sure you understand what they say. When is the last time you read your district’s procedural safeguards?
