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
