“We don’t do that here.”

“Wrong answer!” That’s what our school district’s Director of Special Ed says.

Have you ever heard “We don’t do that here” at an IEP meeting? So frustrating! Don’t take “no” for an answer.

A parent at the Special Ed Advisory Committee (SEAC) meeting suggested a great response. This should work at any school in any district. Respond by saying:

“Okay, but please provide in writing the policy or procedure that supports you in saying that.”

Do you have a SEAC in your school district?
