Parental Rights

Special education laws and procedures are complicated and can be hard to understand.

If you are a parent reading this guide, your child may have been identified as having a disability or may be experiencing difficulties in school. All students possess differences, learn differently and demonstrate varied abilities. This is what makes us unique. Special education is more about ability than disability. What your child can do is far more important than any perceived or actual limitations he or she may be experiencing. Because you know your child better than anyone else, your involvement in the education process is critical.

Bryan County Schools wants and needs your involvement in your child’s education. We hope this information will give you a better understanding of the special education process.

This guide is not meant to replace the Explanation of Procedural Safeguards (Parental Rights) that must be given to parents of eligible children at specific times during the school year. — If you have any questions about special education rules or regulations, please contact your child’s case manager for explanation.
