Special Education: Parent and/or Student is Represented by an Attorney

If the parent and/or student is represented by an attorney, and said attorney plans to attend any meeting as outlined by this handbook or by 603 CMR 28:00, then the district reserves its rights to have its attorney present at said meeting. If the Team member was not informed that the parent/student would be bringing an attorney, then the Team member should contact the Director of Special Education to determine whether the meeting can continue or whether said meeting should be delayed and/or rescheduled to allow for the district’s attorney to attend the meeting as well.
