I sued my school district for not following my son's IEP. They made me sign a contract giving up all the rights of me and my child to sue them again as long as they fulfulled the terms of their agreement....well they not only breech the contract their attorney stated to me in an IEP meeting "An IEP is absolutely NOT a legal document". Well I contacted the board of Ed special needs dept and found our pretty much what I already knew...it IS A LEGAL DOCUMENT AND THE SCHOOL HAS TO FOLLOW IT! So now I've reported them as NOT IN COMPLIANCE and coinceidently or not they are getting audited this spring!
P.S. Most of the teachers are good just not aware there was an IEP but I did just find out it is there responsibility once they have been notified of the child's IEP to know it and follow it.
