Due process during Corona

If this is political and does not belong here, I apologize.

Apparently states can apply for a waiver to not follow special ed laws at this time. From the below article it sounds like it has more to do with behavior supports, therapies, 1:1 help and not being able to meaningfully participate in things like Zoom.

Parents are upset and feel if you take these things away temporarily, they will never come back.

Administrators across the country are pushing back as some parents have already been getting lawyers regarding the current lack of services. There is a big fear that when things settle down, the lawsuits will continue.

My district has been able to meet meeting and re-eval timelines. Unfortunately/fortunately, the parents in our district are not likely to sue, but I can see parents suing in other districts around here.

On a more personal note, I can name current and former students who have families that are going to be viciously angry that they are not getting the break from their student that school provides.
