State Sen. Karen Montgomery Stands Up for Children!

As we reported earlier this week, 9 Maryland State Delegates have sponsored state-wide legislation to shorten the amount of time parents have to review reports prior to an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) meeting.  IEP meetings are held for students in need of special education programs and services.

On Monday February 20, 2012, an online Petition was posted by a parent that OPPOSED this legislation.  As of today, that Petition is about to hit 400 signatures from all over the State of Maryland.

Today, we learned that Maryland State Senator Karen S. Montgomery is strongly OPPOSED to this legislation. On February 16, 2012, Senator Montgomery wrote to the Bill sponsor and co-sponsors, most of whom are from Montgomery County.  Senator Montgomery's letter to the sponsor and co-sponsors is below. 

Congratulations to Senator Karen Montgomery for standing up and speaking out for Maryland children in need of special education services!
