CDS Procedural Safeguards

Procedural Safeguards

The Procedural Safeguards set forth in the Maine Unified Special Education Regulations are the rights that apply when children are: in the referral process for special education: or already identified under special education; or whose parents believe should be identified under special education. If the student is an adult student, the rights apply to the adult student. The School Administrative Unit must provide a copy of the Procedural Safeguards to parents or adult students once a year, and more than once a year if specifically required under the regulations. Strong advocacy by parents and students depends on their awareness of both these safeguards and the rights those safeguards protect.
