What about teachers who have children with special needs attending the same school division where the teacher/parent works? I guess we will have a conflict of interest and teachers will not be able to work with the same district if this case goes against the teacher.

Thanks for your comment. I think there is always a potential conflict when
your own child is in the same district as where you work. I have seen such conflicts both with professional and non-professional staff (head custodian). Legally, no matter which way the case comes down, you can and should explicitly distinguish your roles. I do not believe that the law can take away your IDEA rights as a parent simply because you are also a public employee. Very interesting dilemma though. Factually, a conflict exists no matter what.
