I have a friend whose daughter is enrolled in Queen Creek. She has an IEP. She is being forced to send her child in person starting Monday. If she chooses to go with on line she must sign over and forfeit her child’s special education services. This cannot be legal. Does anyone have any information I can share with this parent? I encouraged her to reach out to the AZ Center for Disability Law and to not sign a thing

I don't know what "Queen Creek" is, and I don't know who is forcing your friend to send her child to school or why. Also, I don't know what the AZ Center for Disability Law is, either. So many things I don't know, which makes it difficult for me to answer any questions.

If your friend is privately homeschooling, she could contact Home School Legal Defense Association. If "Queen Creek" is a public school that has virtual learning, that makes a difference. Possibly she could still contact HSLDA, but I don't know.

That child shouldn't be forced to go to school or attend face-to-face classes. That's just illegal I think. I wouldn't want my child to feel pressured like that . Hmm.

In Michigan, students receiving the service under the special education rules receive a minimum of two nonconsecutive hours of instruction per week. The two one-hour sessions for a student with an IEP may be on the same day; however, there must be an adequate break between the two sessions. Article 23 of the Convention on the Rights of the Child refers to the obligation of States parties and recognizes that a child with mental or physical disabilities is entitled to enjoy a full and decent-life, in conditions that ensure dignity, promote self-reliance and facilitate the child’s active participation in the community.
