NOTICE OF PROCEDURAL SAFEGUARDS FOR PARENTS/GUARDIANS OF STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES (AS OF NOVEMBER 2018)
As the parent/guardian of a student or adult student with a disability who is receiving or may be eligible to receive special education and related services, you have rights which are safeguarded by state and federal law. The rights to which you are entitled are listed below. A full explanation of these rights is available from your child’s school district. Please review this document carefully and contact the district if you have questions or need additional clarification regarding your child’s services or the procedural safeguards available to you.
The notice of your procedural safeguards must be made available to you only one time a year, except that a copy also must be given upon an initial request for an evaluation, a receipt of the first written complaint or first due process complaint to the Illinois State Board of Education, upon a disciplinary removal that constitutes a change in placement, or upon request.
Additional information regarding your rights is available on the ISBE website: https://www.isbe.net/Pages/Special-Education-Programs.aspx in a document entitled, “Parent's Guide - Educational Rights and Responsibilities: Understanding Special Education in Illinois (06/09).
Questions or concerns regarding the procedural safeguards should be directed to the Special Education Administrators.
