State and federal education of the handicapped legislation provides numerous safeguards to ensure appropriate educational opportunity. Parents are expected to be active participants. Schools are obligated to inform parents of their responsibilities, rights and procedures to be followed. The disclosure is lengthy and complicated. To simplify this process five brochures were prepared each to deal with a discrete step or process. The brochures are to be distributed at appropriate times and in conjunction with the full disclosure required by law.
