School start and end times will be changing in the 2018-19 school year as a 7-period day is implemented for high school students. We acknowledge any change has an impact to families’ current schedules. We want to ensure families have ample time to plan for the change.
Procedural Safeguards: Revocation of Consent
If a parent revokes consent for special education services after the district has provided special education and related services, the district will not amend the student’s educational records to remove any reference to the student’s receipt of special education and related services.
Upon receipt of the parent’s written notice of revocation, the district
- Will provide prior written notice before ceasing services;
- Top providing special education and related services after the effective date contained in the district’s prior written notices, and;
- May not use mediation or due process procedures to obtain consent.
Discontinuation of special education and related services in response to the parent’s written revocation does not violate the requirement to make FAPE available to the student and eliminates the requirements to convene an IEP meeting or develop an IEP. However, the district does have a continuing Child Find duty, and staff will follow referral procedures if they believe the student should be referred for special education. In addition, parents may request that the district conduct an initial evaluation for eligibility for special education services after they have revoked consent for continued services.
