WASHINGTON, DC – In response to the U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Right's (OCR) announcement of new updates to the Case Processing Manual, Denise Marshall, executive director for the Council of Parent Attorneys and Advocates made the following statement:

"Today's announcement by OCR shows that recent legal action taken against them is working. While we are still reviewing the reported updates to the manual, we remain steadfast in our commitment to assuring that the needed changes are substantive and put the rights of students and their families first. OCR's mission is 'to ensure equal access to education and to promote educational excellence through vigorous enforcement of civil rights in our nation’s schools.' It's COPAA's right to use every available strategy to ensure they take steps to fulfill that mission rather than make decisions that run counter to it."
