Written Prior Notice

A Written Prior Notice (WPN) is written notification that is provided to parents to explain a change that has been proposed or refused by the district, as the result of a team meeting, but which has not yet been implemented.

It helps ensure that the parents are included in and aware of the decisions that impact their child. It also helps ensure that there is careful consideration of all factors relevant to the proposed/refused actions before any changes are implemented. This notice must be provided to parents no less than 14 calendar days before the action being proposed or refused may be put into place.
