What can the parent do if the district decides not to change the record?
•The parent may request a record amendment hearing. If a parent requests such a hearing on the student’s record, the district will hold one. The hearing is conducted by
an impartial due process
hearing officer procured by the district.
A decision is given in writing no later than 5 calendar days after the hearing.
•If the decision
is that the district does not have to change the record, then the parent has the right to put a statement in the record telling why s/he thinks the information is not right. This statement is kept as long
as the disagreed upon
part is kept. If that part of the record is shown or sent to anyone, the statement is alsoincluded.
