Dispute Resolution Options
There are several methods of dispute resolution regarding special education matters that involve the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). Some options to choose from are:
- Facilitated IEP Team Meeting
- State Complaint
- Due Process Complaint
In addition, there may be other procedural options under different state and federal laws that apply. Deciding the best strategy to resolve your concerns is crucial. It is also important to understand the relevant legal deadlines if there is a time-sensitive matter.
