Federal law prohibits schools from retaliating against you, your child, or school staff for acting in the best interests of your child. Below are examples of violations of the law against retaliation:
- The school ordered staff not to talk to you after you disagreed with the school at an IEP, or wrote a letter objecting to school actions or filed a complaint;
- School disciplined your child in any way when you refused to consent to desired placement;
- School called CPS because you did not agree to offered services;
- Your access to school or your child’s classroom was limited because you disagreed with offer;
- Your child was restrained or secluded because you refused to agree to more restrictive placement;
- School refused to allow your child to attend school when you refused to agree to use of restraints or seclusion;
- School conveyed derogatory information about you to staff after you engaged in protected activities;
- District/school made all decisions at IEP or 504 meeting because you engaged in protected activities; or
- School charged only you for making copies of student file and did not charge parents of typical children.
