A Guide to Parent Rights in Special Education

New Special Education Procedural Safeguards Guide Just Released!

A new special education procedural safeguards notice, A Guide to Parent Rights in Special Education, is now available for district and parent use. This publication replaces the earlier procedural safeguards notice, Whose IDEA Is This? As of August 1, 2017, districts must no longer use that publication.

The Office for Exceptional Children is working to translate A Guide to Parent Rights in Special Education in several languages. The Department will post those versions on its website when they are available.
