Legal Answers
17 Questions Answered
Q. Can I audio record a teacher
A: Generally speaking, Texas is a single party consent state. That means you can record a conversation you are a part of without notifying the other party. However, at school there is a greater expectation of privacy. It is likely against school rules, and very likely infringes on the rights of your classmates and teacher.
Q. Eligibility for IEP under state law - school is denying services based on assessment performance -dyslexia diagnosis
A: I advise requesting a formal special education evaluation, and potentially consulting with a Rhode Island special education attorney on this matter. RTI may not be used to delay/deny an evaluation. See: https://www2.ed.gov/policy/speced/guid/idea/memosdcltrs/osep11-07rtimemo.pdf Sample eval request: https://www.massadvocates.org/s/sample-letter-requesting-evaluation.doc
Q. Can the school provide the details of a ratio between sped and general ed in a classroom cohort?
A: This is not a privacy concern, but there is no explicit "right to know" either. As you correctly note, you are a member of the team. The information may help you to make informed decisions about appropriateness of placement, etc.
