Court Rules Allowing for Appointment of Educational Rights Holder

California Rule of Court 5.650 allows the court to appoint an educational rights holder in dependency and delinquency cases when it has limited the parents’ right to make educational decisions. The Rule spells out the responsibilities of the person appointed to be the education rights holder, including participating in school discipline hearings and advocating for the child with respect to educational assessments, placement in the least restrictive environment, and provision of a free, appropriate public education.
