NSPAC (the Northborough/Southborough Special Education Parent Advisory Council) has teamed with the Hudson PAC to bring a presentation on civil rights for parents and children.
The Special Education PACs want to ensure that parents understand when their families are being discriminated against:
Knowing your rights and how to exercise them is key to ensuring your family is treated equally.
On Thursday, March 20th, the Office of Civil rights will explain:
- Federal civil rights laws that prohibit discrimination on the basis of race, color, nation origin, sex, disability, and age by any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance
- The responsibilities and role of OCR
- How to file a complaint when you experience or witness discrimination
- How due process under IDEA and OCR complaints vary.
The free presentation will take place from 9:30 am – 12:30 pm at the Hudson Town Hall Auditorium, 78 Main Street Hudson.
Registration is encouraged (through www.nspac.org) but walk-ins are welcome.
