Parent Consent Proposed Rule

Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services, Department of Education. Secretary proposes to remove the requirement for public agencies to obtain parental consent prior to accessing for the first time a child’s public benefits or insurance ( e.g., Medicaid, Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP)) to provide or pay for required IDEA Part B services.

We encourage your LEA to submit a comment in support of this proposed rule to remove parent consent requirements.
