In the state of Tennessee, Prior Written Notice (PWN) is required when your school system proposes, refuses or initiates a change of:

• Evaluation
• Identification (determining a student is eligible)
• Appropriate educational placement
• Free and Appropriate Public Education (FAPE)

Anytime the school says “no” about education, or a change of service is proposed or refused, parents must be provided a completed Prior Written Notice form. If it is NOT provided, ask for it. This is a parental right.
