Hudson, MI asked in Education Law for Michigan

Q: Can a school refuse to allow a student to transition to f2f if virtual is not meeting the students needs.

Our school offers both f2f and virtual. After 6 weeks, it is clear the Virtual platform is not meeting my students needs. My student has an IEP. I Have requested my student return to f2f but have been told I have to wait until the end of the first trimester (end and of November).

A: Good question, that unfortunately, I don't believe there is a solid answer. I would suggest, as is often the case with school law, that your advocacy will matter. If necessary, the issue should be addressed with the district's special education coordinator or equivalent, or the school board.
