The Parent Mentor program is a support network for parents of children with disabilities. We help out with parents who need support or whom do not understand the special education process. We can meet with parents prior to a scheduled school meeting and also accompany them to the meeting to assist the parents in working with the school team for their child. This is available at no extra cost to any participating districts or parents. We are funded by a federal grant.

We have also created a DVD Library list that is available for parents and teachers to borrow on a variety of topics relating to special education. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.

Introduction to this Guide of Parent Rights: The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) protects the rights of students with disabilities and the rights of their parents. This guide tells you about those rights. Your school must give you a copy of the guide once every year if your child receives special education services. You also must receive a copy:
• If you ask for your child to be evaluated because you think your child may have a disability;
• If your school district wants to have your child evaluated because it thinks your child may have a disability;
• If you file (submit) a complaint – in writing – with the Office for Exceptional Children (OEC) at the Ohio Department of Education (ODE), and it is your first complaint of the school year;
• If you file (submit) a request – in writing – with the OEC at the ODE for a due process hearing regarding your child’s education, and it is the first time in the school year you have asked for one;
• If your child has been removed from school for disciplinary (behavior) reasons – and your child has already been removed from school for 10 days or more during the current school year; or
• Any time you ask for a copy of the guide.
