I am not sure if I understand the issue with your school district. Could you elaborate more on the issue? You are saying that the school district “literally closed the system to parents with students in special ed”. What do you mean by “close the system”? Are you talking about only students who attend special day classrooms or are in special education schools?

I was reading about FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act) and it says that this is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records.
