The Belleville-News Democrat reported recently that District 7 has decided that “students with autism and emotional disabilities will return to District 7 classrooms next year.”
This decision appears to disregard individual students’ needs and overrule IEP team decisions. Click here for the full story.
If your child is at risk of being placed in a program that does not provide a free, appropriate, public education, you have the right to contest that decision and keep your child in her current placement pursuant to the stay-put provision of the IDEA.
If you have questions about your child’s IEP or academic placement, please call for a free phone consultation.
