Defining A Parent According to IDEA

An individual acting in the place of a natural or adoptive parent
An individual assigned to be a surrogate parent
Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act
Provides parents with the right to inspect, review, and copy all educational records of their child and receive these copies within 45 days
The school does not charge the parents for the time it took to find and copy the records
Students at the Age of Majority
The age of majority is an age in which the child becomes an adult and is no longer considered a minor, it typically happens between 18-21. In Nebraska the age of majority is 19.
Parent Participation Defined
Stated in the Ninth Amendment, people have the right to participate in the choice of education and the educational process.
However, IDEA does not ensure them the right to select how the educational material will be taught by the classroom teacher.
Parents and their Child's IEP
They are a required member of the IEP team
Parents have the right to examine all records and receive prior written notice if there is a change in their child's IEP
Parents Participation in the IEP Meeting
Parent Involvement in the School
The IDEA places a premium on parental involvement by requiring that schools go to great lengths to involve the parents
A violation of IDEA may include the school district failing to advise parents of their legal rights and responsibilities, procedures available, and educational alternatives
When parents are allowed to visit their child's classroom, they can help both their child and the teacher
Parents can visually see what their child is struggling with in the classroom and help them
Teachers can learn different methods from the parent about how their child learns

There are several factors that play into how and why parents should be involved in their child's education.
