Access Living is looking for parents of CPS students with disabilities who have not been receiving consistent and reliable nursing care this school year. As a disability rights organization, Access Living has been closely monitoring this egregious nursing failure in CPS schools and looking for ways to ensure nursing care for students with disabilities. Students who either have a 504 plan or an IEP requiring nursing care have federal rights to receive reliable quality care they need. Therefore, one possible action to stop CPS’ continuing failure is that parents file a lawsuit against CPS. For that reason, we would like to conduct a parent survey on the nursing issues and determine if a legal action is necessary to make CPS provide quality nursing care to students.
Based on the survey results, our legal team will make a determination if this is a legally strong case. If so, we will contact parents who took the survey questionnaire and ask their interest of filing a lawsuit as a plaintiff. There will be no legal fee to parents.
Access Living has been working with various community organizations to ensure the rights of all children with disabilities to free and appropriate public school education. You can find our education advocacy work here: https://www.accessliving.org/index.php?tray=topic&tid=138JKtop41&cid=138JK91.
