Episode 310,   Nov 14, 2023, 02:00 PM

What's PWN?
  • PWN, or Prior Written Notice, is your backstage pass to understanding school recommendations and your child's educational journey.
  • It's your GPS, guiding you through changes in your child's education – from identification to FAPE.
The Power of PWN
  • PWN isn't just a piece of paper; it's a superhero cape for parents.
  • It's your right to be informed and challenge decisions that might affect your child's education.
  • Even if everyone's on the same page, PWN is your secret weapon to document IEP decisions.
Your Right to PWN
  • You have the right to request PWN. If it's not delivered, ask for it.
  • It should be crystal clear, in your language, and easy to understand.
  • Knowing the law, like Section 303-421 under IDEA, arms you to be the best advocate for your child.
  • PWN is your passport to active, informed, and powerful parenting in the special education process.
  • It secures the support and services your child deserves – it's your key to success.
