Prior Written Notice. Alliance Action Information Sheets
Technical Assistance ALLIANCE for Parent Centers
Prior Written Notice is one of the important rights in special education for parents. These rights are in a federal law called the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). When a child receives special education services, this law says that schools must notify parents in writing before taking a specific action or before refusing to take an action that parents have requested. This paper presents information about prior written notice. Some real life examples are also presented. For more information, also read the ALLIANCE handout called Informed Parent Consent.
