  • Call the school board office and tell them. Talk to a lawyer about it. I think that falls under HIPPA regulations.

  • This is far too broad of a question. Ask a lawyer.

  • I wouldn't call anyone at the school or school board. They would just side with the psychologist. I'd contact an attorney.

  • Yea its too broad...what did they do? Sometimes with an IEP they have the right to talk to others about the case...you've probably signed papers pretaining to some of that. I would contact the principal and go up from there.

  • I have to agree with seeing a lawyer. I'm about to have my son's IEP and this year, we'll be talking about his 3 year evaluation and testing. I may have a lawyer go to IEP with me, just to be on the safe side!

  • You need to report the violation, in writing, to your state's DOE - most have something set up for just such a situation and they can help you file the appropriate paperwork, etc. They can also investigate the violation. Another option you have is to report the school psychologist to the licensing board and they will also do an investigation. Contacting a special education lawyer should also be on your "to do" list, b/c you are going to need the lawyers help once it all goes to Due Process.
