THE SPECIAL EDUCATION BILL OF RIGHTS


Every Child has the Right to Be Their Best


Every child must receive equal treatment under the law with the opportunity to rise to their highest level of achievement and be their best.


Every Child Must be Treated Fairly and Equally


Every child must be treated equally, without regard to race, creed, color, religion, income or beliefs.


Every Child Must Have a Special Defender


An advocate must be provided free of cost, just like a public defender is provided to those accused of a crime who are unable to afford one, to assure that they fully understand their rights and that their children receive fair and equal treatment under the law.


Parents/Caregivers Must be Treated with Respect


Parents and caregivers must be treated with the respect and kindness they deserve. 


An Ombudsman Must be Appointed for Dispute Resolution


In the event of a dispute between school districts and parents, an ombudsman will work together with both parties to attempt to provide conflict resolution.  Individuals in this role will be volunteers from the community who are attorneys, parents of children with special needs, or other interested parties approved by the majority of a group of individuals comprised of equal numbers of board of education members and parents of children with special needs.



The time has come - to make sure no child with special needs gets left behind
