Parent's Bill of Rights

Wakulla County Schools joins the Florida Legislature in recognizing that it is a fundamental right of parents to direct the upbringing, education, and care of their minor children.  Because there are multiple kinds of services available, this Parent Page permits you, as a parent with fundamental rights under Florida’s Parents' Bill of Rights, to make informed, individualized, and specific consent decisions that best support both your child and your parenting decisions.

Please be advised that by providing consent to healthcare or other services you are not waiving your rights to access any records that Wakulla County Schools may possess regarding your child.  Wakulla County Schools protects parental rights by abiding by and enforcing Section 1002.22, Florida Statutes, as well as the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) with regards to a student’s records.

Please be advised that to the extent that your child is educated through the utilization of an individualized education plan (IEP) or Section 504 Plan, then the specific written consent(s) you have provided during the IEP or Section 504 planning, or evaluation process will control and take precedence over any consent parameters set forth in this parental information section.  If you are not in agreement with the consents and/or services or evaluations provided to your child under their IEP or Section 504 planning or evaluation process, please contact their school to schedule a team meeting to discuss the same and otherwise avail yourself of the rights afforded to you under the IDEA and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
