You may withdraw consent for all or part of the services or withdraw consent for the Individualized Educational Plan (IEP) at any time, as long as you do so in writing. The school cannot force you to accept the IEP as an all-or-nothing document.
If you withdraw consent, your student will still be counted for up to two years as a “special education student” for reporting purposes, but they will no longer be given accommodations or provisions by the school. You also cannot sue or hold the school accountable for your child’s failure to make progress per the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA) if you have withdrawn consent for all services.
