NSBA Urges the U.S. Supreme Court to Uphold Long-Standing Processes that Encourage Parent-School Collaboration in Special Education

October 14, 2016 – The National School Boards Association (NSBA), joined by the Michigan Association of School Boards (MASB), the School Superintendents Association (AASA), Association of School Business Officials International (ASBO), and National Association of State Directors of Special Education (NASDSE), filed a “friend of the court” (amicus) brief in the U.S. Supreme Court case of Fry v. Napoleon Community Schools.

“IDEA’s due process procedures were put in place for the benefit of students with disabilities,” said Thomas J. Gentzel, National School Boards Association Executive Director and CEO. “Parents and schools working collaboratively to address the individual educational needs of students produces the best outcomes for students with and without disabilities, their parents, and their local school districts. We encourage the Court to discourage any resolution that encourages more litigation and diverts precious funds away from the classroom.”
