If there is one thing parents of children with IEPs know very well nowadays, it is the knowledge that their child’s school services are provided under a law called the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) which ensures a child’s right to a Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) based on their individual needs. But what isn’t always thought about is the fact that this law wasn’t always in existence. It took many years of parents and disability advocates championing the cause with federal lawmakers to have this legislation come into being. It was through these past efforts that our children now have the opportunities they do to have a public school experience with their peers.

Even 45 years later, federal, state, and local legislators remain very much a part of the process to ensure educational services continue for our children with disabilities, and parents keeping in touch with them is an important part of that process too - “still”. Listed below are the current legislators who represent the boundaries of Rochester Community School District. We hope this information helps families to more easily communicate their needs, concerns, thoughts, or ideas to those in a position to help most. Working together, we can keep education appropriate for all!
