ESSEX COUNTY - SPECIAL EDUCATION

Negotiation with district to obtain promotion to next grade, appropriate IEP or 504 plan, and possible comp. ed.

MK is a 15-year-old who just finished 9th grade. She has chronic migraines, but does not have an IEP or 504 plan, despite the fact that her mother, EN, requested a 504 plan in October 2017. As a result of the migraines, she missed a significant portion of the year. The district was disorganized and uncooperative in providing home instruction, resulting in MK missing weeks of instruction and ultimately receiving failing grades. The district let EN know that it plans to retain MK. EN is seeking her daughter’s promotion to the 10th grade with an appropriate IEP or 504 plan, and compensatory education if appropriate.
