I disagree with:
The school’s evaluation
If the school’s evaluation is wrong, you can get an independent evaluation.
If you do not agree with the Individualized Education Plan (IEP) you can reject all or part of it.
My child's placement
If you think the school’s placement for your child is wrong, you can reject that part of the IEP.
If you disagree with the IEP or placement, your child can still get special education services. See “Stay Put”
If you have concerns that you want to discuss with the school, you can request an IEP Team Meeting any time during the school year, even if you have already had a meeting that year.
You can ask the Bureau of Special Education Appeals (BSEA) for a hearing if the school district decides:
- Your child does not qualify for special education, or
- You cannot come to an agreement about services or a placement.
