Out-of-District Placement with Hinkle, Prior & Fischer
Tuesday, March 7th, 6:00 - 7:00pm
Often times, new school districts will reconsider a student’s out-of-district placement in favor of local public programs. Parents need to know their child’s rights when services change, are cut back, limited or otherwise modified. In this workshop, parents will learn how placement decisions are made, what the important timelines are in the special education system, and the “Stay Put” provision of the law.
