Short Procedural Safeguards Statement

As the parent of a student who is or may be determined eligible for special education services or as an adult student who is or may be determined eligible for special education services, you have rights regarding identification, evaluation, classification, the development of an IEP, placement and the provision of a free, appropriate public education under the New Jersey Administrative Code for Special Education, N.J.A.C. 6A:14. A description of these rights, which are called procedural safeguards, is contained in the document, Parental Rights in Special Education (PRISE). The document is published by the New Jersey Department of Education.


A copy of the PRISE is provided to you one time each year, upon request by you, upon referral for an initial evaluation, when a disciplinary action that constitutes a change in placement is imposed, when a due process hearing is requested, and when a request for a complaint investigation is filed by you.
