Both state and federal special education laws give parents certain rights, called Procedural Safeguards, that are designed to protect the rights of parents and their child with a disability. This module of the Individualized Education Program (IEP) Series includes: the purpose and contents of the Procedural Safeguards Notice, understandable language, when a parent must receive this Notice, confidentiality, prior written notice, parental consent, and options for resolving disputes that may arise.

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will be able to describe the purpose of the Procedural Safeguards Notice.               
  • Participants will be able to relate when written notices and parent consent are required.
  • Participants will be able to recognize the dispute resolution options found in the Procedural Safeguards Notice.
