School Delaying Meetings

My granddaughter has an IEP. We inquired at an IEP meeting earlier in the year about ESY. We were told it would be discussed in the Spring. We were informed of the meeting to discuss it and attended. We disagreed with their denial of services. We requested that the Director of Special Education attend the next meeting as we were told she was the only one who could change their decision. Theyve given us 2 dates that are 10.days before the school year ends. This leaves us no time to exercise our right to request a hearing. Can they do this?

Some examples of what they cover:

Operating Standards and Guidance
Operating Standards

Whose IDEA is This? (April 2, 2012), with the required Addendum (January 21, 2014), serves as the required parent notice of procedural safeguards.

The Ohio Operating Standards for the Education of Children with Disabilities which are Ohio Administrative Code Rules 3301-51-01 to 09, 11 and 21, became effective on July 1, 2014. A broad overview of changes to the rules is provided in the Summary of Changes to the Operating Standards.

The Ohio Operating Standards for the Education of Children with Disabilities identify the state requirements and federal Part B Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEA) requirements that apply to the implementation of special education and related services to students with disabilities by school districts, county boards of developmental disabilities and other educational agencies.

Office for Exceptional Children Law and Policy Memorandums

Below are communications distributed to Ohio educational agencies serving children with disabilities notifying them of important changes or clarifications to special education requirements.

Memorandum Subject Date Issued
2017-1 Students in Separate Facilities January 13, 2017
2016-3 WIOA Section 511 Guidance December 8, 2016
2016-2 Service Provider Ratio and Workload Clarification February 3, 2016
2016-1 Serving Students with Disabilities in Community Corrections Facilities and Juvenile Detention Centers February 3, 2016
2015-1 Adding and Removing a Related Service to an IEP September 10, 2015
2013-1

Prior Written Notice

December 20, 2013
2012-2 Parent Notification of Scholarship Programs September 24, 2012
2012-1 Secondary Transition September 6, 2012
Special Education Policies and Procedures

The Ohio Operating Standards for the Education of Children with Disabilities requires traditional public schools and chartered community schools to adopt written policies and procedures regarding the education of children with disabilities (3301‐51‐02(A)). In addition, the Operating Standards allow districts to choose which method they will use to determine the existence of a specific learning disability and require districts to develop written procedures for the implementation of their chosen method (3301‐51‐06(H)(3)(f)). Districts may adopt the Special Education Model Policies and Procedures developed by the Ohio Department of Education or develop their own and submit for approval.

Policies and Procedures Adoption Form
Additional information on the requirement to adopt written special education policies and procedures

Below is the general overview of what the guide is: Its a 34 page pdf and will be invaluable.

Introduction to this Guide of Parent Rights
The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) protects the rights of students with
disabilities and the rights of their parents. This guide tells you about those rights. Your school
must give you a copy of the guide once every year if your child receives special education
services. You also must receive a copy:
• If you ask for your child to be evaluated because you think your child may have a disability;
• If your school district wants to have your child evaluated because it thinks your child may
have a disability;
• If you file (submit) a complaint – in writing – with the Office for Exceptional Children at the
Ohio Department of Education, and it is your first complaint of the school year;
• If you file (submit) a request – in writing – with the Office for Exceptional Children at the
Ohio Department of Education for a due process hearing regarding your child’s education,
and it is the first time in the school year you have asked for one;
• If your child has been removed from school for disciplinary (behavior) reasons – and your
child has already been removed from school for 10 days or more during the current school
year; or
• Any time you ask for a copy of the guide.

Did you read the ESY rules and minimum requirements? And you feel your granddaughter qualifies?

The only rule about meetings, that I am aware of, is that they have to happen within 60 days of you requesting them.

Why would this leave you no time to request a hearing? I thought the people that did the hearings were year round employees.
