- All children with disabilities have the right to a free appropriate public education.
- A copy of the procedural safeguards notice shall be given to the parents of a child with a disability at a minimum upon initial referral for evaluation, upon each notification of an Individualized Education Program (IEP) Team meeting, upon reevaluation of the child and upon receipt of a request for due process.
- The procedural safeguards notice shall include a full explanation of the procedural safeguards, written in the native language of the parent, unless it clearly is not feasible to do so, and written in an easily understandable manner. If the native language or other mode of communication of the parent is not a written language, the notice is to be translated orally or by other means to the parent in his or her native language or other mode of communication. The local education agency shall take steps to ensure that the parent understands the content of the notice and shall ensure that written evidence exists that these requirements have been met.
