Individual Protections


Individual Protections is a service provided to member school districts (local education agencies) in the Desert Mountain Special Education Local Plan Area (DMSELPA) and Charter Special Education Local Plan Area (DMCS). The Program Manager for Due Process oversees these responsibilities. Built-in to this position is the distribution of information and initiation of procedures that ensure compliance with all parent and child rights and requirements. These include the availability of parent and child rights notices, equal access to programs and services, correction of identified programs and services concerns, and compliance with required timelines for assessment and placement of children.

Due Process is a requirement under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) that sets forth a regulatory basis for a formal set of policies and procedures to be implemented by schools and districts for children in special education programs. Due Process provides children with disabilities receive a free appropriate public education (FAPE). These policies and procedures are described in the school district's Notice of Procedural Safeguards, otherwise known as Parents' Rights.
