If mediation doesn’t work, you have the right to an impartial due process hearing. Each side presents their position, and a hearing officer decides what the appropriate educational program should be, based on the IDEA laws.

Your school district must give you a written copy of special education procedural rules that outline the steps for mediation and due process hearings.

By staying involved and informed, you can effectively help your school meet the unique educational needs of your child.
