Establishing a Bill of Rights for Parents of Students Receiving Special Education Services

eduStudents receiving special education services have certain rights under state and federal law that protect their ability to receive an education and transition to life after high school. Last year, I supported the passage of legislation that established a "Transition Bill of Rights for Parents of Students Receiving Special Education Services." This bill of rights has now been completed and will soon be provided by school districts to parents and guardians of children receiving special education services in grades 6-12. Parents will be informed through this document of their rights regarding transition planning. They will also be given information on resources available to them and their children through the Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE).

The full Transition Bill of Rights is available online if you wish to review it. For additional help with special education or services for students transitioning to life after high school, call the CSDE at 860-713-6910 or visit their website. If you would prefer to contact my office with concerns on this or any other topic, please do not hesitate to contact my office by phone at 860-240-0584 or send me an email.
