What can be done if, after an IEP meeting, the Board of Education does not approve the IEP that was discussed and agreed upon at a CSE meeting?


Dear Liz,

If the school district does not follow the IEP that has been agreed upon, it is in violation of the IDEA. Among other things, the decisions about your child’s education are supposed to be made by the IEP team, with your involvement. A decision by others outside of the IEP meeting would be inconsistent with this requirement. You could file a complaint with the state department of education, a complaint with OCR, or request a special education due process hearing. You should consult a knowledgeable special education lawyer about the specific issues in your case.
