Did You Know?
It is illegal for school officials to hold an IEP meeting or behavior manifestation meetings without you!

If this just happened, and you're getting the runaround from the school district, don't wait--report it immediately to the U.S. Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights (OCR). Let them explain to the Feds why they broke the law!

Put Your Lips to that Whistle and Blow!
If your special education child has been suspended, expelled unlawfully, or targeted for discrimination, or if the school district is not following the IEP or holding timely  IEP meetings, or expelled your child without a "manifestation meeting" file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education, Office for Civil Rights. You have 180 days from the date of discrimination to file, so the sooner, the better!
HOT TIP:
Numbers have impact! If you can, find out if your school district has violated the civil rights of other parents and special-ed students. Get together and file your complaints at the same time.

If you or your child is being abused or harassed by school employees, call your State's Department of Family Services or Child Protective Services, immediately! Ask their advice! If a report is filed, let the professionals investigate if there are other victims.
