Parental requests and consents regarding the IEP process or inclusions to the IEP MUST be in writing with an original signature (not by email).
We want to be sure our parents are informed that any parental requests and consents regarding the IEP process or inclusions to the IEP (including requests for an IEP meeting or concerns about student progress or compensatory education) MUST be in writing with an original signature. This means we are not able to accept emails for these types of correspondence.
This is a mandated practice.
According to Jackson School District Board Policy 2460:
"The school district will not accept the use of electronic mail from the parent(s) or adult pupils to submit requests to a school officialregarding referral, identification, evaluation, classification, and the provision of a free appropriate education (FAPE).All requests must be submitted to school officials in writing and must include an original signature.Electronic mail requests will not be accepted.All consents required by N.J.A.C. 6A:14-1.2(b)18 which are provided by parent(s) or adult pupils must be in writing and must include an original signature.Electronic mail consent will not be accepted."
