Parental Rights

  • Parental Rights

    • GCPS has the goal of working collaboratively with parents and coming to consensus on matters related to Special Education.
    • Despite a team’s best efforts, there are times when parent(s), may disagree with the determination of the team.
    • Should you disagree with the evaluation or IEP, you have dispute resolution options. 
      • When a resolution cannot be reached locally, amongst the IEP team, IDEA provides for additional processes available to families of students with disabilities. 
        • These processes include:
          • Formal Complaints
          • Mediation
          • Due Process Hearing
