The Resolution Process
The resolution process became part of IDEA in 2004! IDEA now requires that school systems convene a resolution meeting within 15 days of receiving notice that a parent has filed a due process complaint and before the school system initiates the due process hearing. The purpose of the resolution meeting is for parents to discuss their due process complaint and the facts that form the basis of that complaint, so that the school system has the opportunity to resolve the dispute without holding a due process hearing.
This issue of the Resolving Disputes with Parents Series summarizes the resolution process.
