  • SPECIAL EDUCATION RIGHTS OF PARENTS AND CHILDREN

    This process anticipates your active participation and cooperation. No one has the opportunity to know your child better than you. The law also provides methods to help you assure that your input is considered. In addition, the law establishes means for you to object to our proposals or refusals and to have an impartial person resolve any disputes. This extensive and complex bundle of rights, conferred by Federal and State special education laws, generally are called the "procedural safeguards." The purpose of this brochure is to give you an overview of these rights. A more complete explanation is available from your local school district or the Nevada Department of Education.

Supported Decision Making

  • Nevada has a new Supported Decision Making law, NRS 162C, which confirms that persons with disabilities are the best persons to make decisions about their lives.
     
    The new law also provides that needing assistance in aspects of daily life should not be a barrier to a person being the ultimate decision-maker in one’s life. Learn more at: https://sdmnevada.org.
