These guidelines are intended to assist North Dakota special educators and administrators in providing procedural safeguards including prior written notice and parental consent. Guidelines are closely correlated with requirements under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) 1997. Each section of these guidelines summarizes relevant requirements under the IDEA regulations. The section on procedural safeguards is followed by a table summarizing procedures regarding prior written notice, procedural safeguards, and parental consent. Separate sections specify guidelines for prior written notice and parental consent for evaluation and special education services. Appended are the full text of the relevant federal regulations and sample forms. Also appended is a document for parents entitled, "Procedural Safeguards in Special Education for Children and Parents." This booklet also covers topics such as records, evaluation procedures, least restrictive environment, educational surrogate parents, discipline, and private school placement. (DB)
