If I am appealing a decision, what happens to my child during the interim?

special education attorney will advise you about the implications for your child’s special education program and services during the time that your case is being appealed. The IDEA provides that, for the sake of stability and consistency, a child should remain in the last program which both the parent and school district agreed was appropriate. Whatever that last agreed upon program was, the school district will have to provide it at public expense until appeals are concluded, even if the parents ultimately do not prevail on the merits of their case.
