Welcome to Dispute Resolution!

The requirement for schools to facilitate parents’ participation in educational decisions regarding their children is evident throughout the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), the federal law that deals with special education. Although the spirit of the regulations is that parents and schools will arrive at consensus, sometimes conflict arises. The Office of Dispute Resolution offers a number of options for parents and schools to address and resolve these conflicts.
