Provisions Related to a Parent’s Right to Refuse Specialized ELD Services and Programs

Under federal civil rights laws, parents have the right to refuse to have their child participate in any specialized, separate ESL program or service. Pennsylvania has developed policies and procedures to satisfy this federal requirement. This webinar will provide guidance to school administrative personnel on what communication needs to be provided to parents of these students. The session will also discuss LEA’s continued responsibilities toward educating their English learners.
