Changes in the Illinois School Code help both parents and schools

In August 2009 the Illinois School Code was changed to help resolve an area in the code that was unclear and led to conflict between parents and school districts. The law in Illinois now allows parents or a qualified professional that parents hire to observe the educational environment of a child with special needs if the parents do not believe their child's needs are being met. The school and parent agree on the date and time and move forward. Prior to this change, each school district in Illinois had its own policy; some schools allowed parents access and others did not. Now all do.
