Parents can revoke their consent for special education services in writing at any time.
Once your revocation is effective, your child will no longer be eligible to receive a free appropriate public education (FAPE) as defined under the IDEA and will no longer be entitled to protections received when identified as a child eligible for special education programs or services. The school district will not be required to convene an individualized education program (IEP) team meeting or develop an IEP for your child.

Informed Parent Consent is one of the important parent rights in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). IDEA is the federal special education law. When your child receives special education services, there are times when the school must obtain your written permission before acting.
