Special Education: What Parents Need to Know

What Parents Need to Know

The special education process is designed to enable parents of students with educational disabilities and the School District to work together to ensure that each child is provided an appropriate education. The Woodbury School Special Education Department believes parents are an important part of this process and are encouraged to take an active role. 

During the special education process, parents are asked to sign documents indicating their consent. They are given Procedural Safeguards which details all rights given to parents of children with disabilities. Services can only be started (or changed) with parents’ consent. Parents receive information about the progress their child is making toward the IEP goals during the school year.
