IDEA Special Education Resolution Meetings:
A Guide for Parents of Children & Youth (Ages 3-21)
A resolution meeting is a dispute resolution process that takes place after a parent files a due process complaint. Resolution meetings offer parents and school districts the opportunity to resolve issues before a due process hearing happens. Participants include the parent, someone from the school district who can make decisions on behalf of the school, and individualized education program (IEP) team members who have knowledge about the facts listed in the due process complaint. A parent may also choose to bring an advocate, attorney, or other support person. This issue of NASET’s Resolving Disputes with Parents series was written by the Center for Appropriate Dispute Resolution in Special Education and focuses on resolution meetings. It is specifically written for parents and informs them of the basics of the resolution meeting.
