Q. Educational Rights holder under IDEA times of issue 2016-2020 client turned 18 after graduation. parent or child?
A: In MA, it would be the child unless parents have guardianship. The statute of limitations under IDEA is only 2 years, so depending on the facts (including when you knew or should've known there was an IDEA violation) you may only be able to go back to 2018. I would highly recommend contacting a local special education attorney.
Q. I am a teacher Special Education Teacher in Indiana
A: I would definitely recommend following up with an attorney in Indiana. Depending on the facts, you could have a tort claim against the school for negligence. In MA there is a liability cap of $100,000, and strict procedures that must be followed to put the school on notice. Good luck!
Q. If the public school refuses accommodations for my child's 504 plan, what can be done?
A: I would recommend contacting the Office of Civil Rights (OCR). 504 requires school districts to provide appropriate education services that meet the individual needs of the student to equal the way the needs of students do not have disabilities are met. You may additionally have recourse through your state's administrative complaint system. In MA it is the Board of Special Education Appeals, but there should be a similar avenue for Due Process in your state. Information about the OCR complaint process: https://www2.ed.gov/about/offices/list/ocr/complaintprocess.html?src=image Complaint form: https://ocrcas.ed.gov/ If your daughter is not making effective progress, you may also consider whether she should be evaluated (or re-evaluated) for special education services. Good luck!
