Mother and two kids being interviewed

Getting involved in your child’s education is among the most important things you can do to make sure that your child gets the support he or she needs throughout their school career.

  • Your child has the right to a free and appropriate public school education.
  • You have a right to be a part of every decision regarding your child’s education, including the process of finding out if your child needs special services.
  • You should familiarize yourself with your child’s rights. These rights are federally mandated by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).
  • You know your child best, and your input should be considered at every opportunity.
