Having Over 100 State Violations in the Iowa City Special Education Dept Is Unacceptable!

This petition had 118 supporters


Over one hundred violations within the Special Education Department as cited in the Iowa Department of Education's Accreditation Final Report have yet to be explained and addressed by ICCSD Superintendent Steve Murley. The magnitude of the violations, a pervasive "retaliatory" culture within the district as decribed in the DOE report, along with a lack of public explanation or apology are things we cannot ignore. We deserve and demand answers for how routine non-compliance with the IDEA act along with dismissal of safeguards to ensure legal protection for students were allowed to continually occur. These state findings are completely unacceptable and require serious consideration from the School Board. This is not simply a "paperwork problem", as Mr. Murley has stated to the press. We demand that superintendent Steve Murley be held accountable and that action be taken by the School Board to ensure that our children's rights are protected.
