Did you know?
Advocates for students with disabilities, including parents, are protected from retaliation by public entities including school districts. When parents suffer retaliation for their advocacy on behalf of their disabled child, they may have a remedy.
How do you know if you have been the victim of retaliation?
•Have you been advocating on behalf of your disabled child?
•Has your school district taken any adverse action against you as a result?
•Have you been reported to Children’s Services?
•Have you been reported to the police?
•Has the school district refused to accept your valid doctor’s excuse when your child is absent?
If you have answered yes to some or all of these questions, you may be the victim of retaliation and/or disability based discrimination.
