Letter to Ms. Patti Ralabate
October 9, 2002
Topic: Notice to Parents

Letter clarifying:

  1. that if an IEP meeting does not result in a proposal or refusal to initiate or change the identification, evaluation, or educational placement of the child or the provision of a FAPE to their child, prior notice is not required,
  2. that one method public agencies could use to meet the requirement for reporting the information on IEP goals required by 34 CFR 300.347(a)(7)(ii)(A) and (B) to parents would be to include that information on the periodic report cards that report grading information to all students, and
  3. how the language needs of a child with a disability who has limited English proficiency must be addressed in the child's IEP based on the individual needs of the child.
