What is an informal removal, and what do you need to know as a parent or guardian of a child with a disability? What should you do if you are contacted by the school to pick-up your child from school early for behavior related incidents? How can you make sure your child’s right to a free appropriate public education (FAPE) is being upheld?  Also, how do you know if you are being offered the procedural safeguards set forth in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA)? The following resources will help you understand informal removals better. 

Understanding student removals is important and knowing how to manage one if it happens to your child can make a big difference. If you have additional questions about informal removals, please reach out to us at specialeducation@thearctn.org.
