"Doug C. v. Hawaii Department of Education": Parental Participation in IEP Development
Yell, Mitchell L.; Katsiyannis, Antonis; Losinski, Mickey
Intervention in School and Clinic, v51 n2 p118-121 Nov 2015
Parental participation is a crucial component of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. When developing students' Individualized Education Programs (IEPs), school-based teams must place a high priority on involving students' parents in a collaborative effort to develop their children's educational programs and determine their placements. In this article, we examine "Doug C. v. Hawaii Department of Education," a case in which the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit reaffirmed the central role of parents in the IEP decision-making process. This column outlines the facts of this case and discusses implications of this decision for school district personnel and IEP team members.
