A ‘Next Step’ to Consider With IEP Disagreements

A ‘Next Step’ to Consider With IEP Disagreements

In the best of times, a child’s IEP runs into a hurdle or two along the way. If attempts to work with the school or school district have not succeeded, parents can file a complaint with the state. Even with state offices physically closed because of COVID-19, parents still have that recourse. The Oregon Department of Education lays out all the details here.. For those of us left a bit confused by government “official-speak,” help is available from organizations such as FACT Oregon and Disability Rights Oregon. Parents can find support by calling FACT Oregon’s  phoneline or emailing. Along with guidance and details on IEPs and disabilities, Disability Rights Oregon’s website includes sample letters to start the complaint process.
School Opening Guidelines for Oregon

School Opening Guidelines for Oregon

The State of Oregon has released revised school opening guidelines.  These are called Ready Schools, Safe Learners - Guidance for School Year 2020-2021  (Version 5.6.2 - February 19, 2021.) These guidelines help schools decide when they can open and how they can open. As parents and family members we can read this document to better understand when schools are likely to open and the factors that underlie the decisions around how and when to open. See the entire document here.
