Feeling pressured to sign an 'IEP Exemption' form by your school? Did you know that these forms are NOT required under the IDEA or California Education, Code of Regulations or Health codes?
Your school cannot require a parent sign these forms as a condition of registration, enrollment or attendance for your student with an IEP.
What to do if your school presents you with an 'IEP Exemption' form:
1) Ask IN WRITING (email is fine) if the form is required (and get the reply in writing).
2) Ask for a copy IN WRITING (email is fine) to take home and review.
3) Ask IN WRITING (email is fine) who drafted the form and where signed forms are kept.
4) Contact Educate. Advocate. for help!
