Subject: Parental Consent to Bill Medicaid Update
I had a great
question from a district, and I thought I would share the question and answer
an LEA mail the notification of rights and form for parental consent in the same
LEAs may send
the notification of parental rights and request for parental consent in the
same mailing. This is compliant because it allows the parent to have a
reasonable amount of time to ask questions and provide informed consent.
provide the parents a notification of parental rights and form to provide
parental consent at an IEP team meeting. However, the school may
NOT ask or require the parent to provide consent at the IEP team meeting.
The district must allow the parents to take the information home, and give the
parent reasonable time to ask questions and provide informed consent.
practice may be to provide the notification of rights with the invitation to
attend the IEP team meeting, and then provide the consent form to the parent
at the IEP team meeting. The LEA could ask the parent to sign it at the
meeting if the parent has had a reasonable time to review the notification of
rights prior to the meeting.
please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns. Take care.
