The West Virginia Parent Training and Information Project is a federally funded agency to help families know their rights under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), which governs school IEP’s. They are a great resource, though not a magic wand. If your district is behaving illegally, then can confirm what you suspect, and help you figure out a next step. As many of you know, they and other agencies can’t budge your school district if the district does’t want to budge! Still, their support is great. To go to their website click on the green text:
fun fun, the agency is currently asking families to fill out a survey about YOUR experiences with special education in your school district! I know that many of our families would LOVE to fill this out!
