Chain of Command | Brett Swanson
There is a chain of command from teachers to administrators. Who should you reach out to first and how should you escalate issues if you must?
Attorney Brett Swanson discusses the chain of command and gives advice on what you can do during your children’s time away from school to bring up issues with regards to individualized education programs and more.
The following is a list of key take aways from the video.
- Document communications. Email, email, email! This will maintain context for your communications.
- CC admins when you message teachers. Keep a record of what was said and when via email. You will have proof you spoke with them.
- Can you get in contact with your IEP team? Keep adding to the CC list until someone responds to you!
