Arizona State-coordinated Facilitated IEP Program

This is a free, voluntary early resolution option available to IEP teams experiencing conflict or communication difficulties. It is available for both parents of children with disabilities and school districts/charters where both parties agree it would be helpful to have a neutral, independent facilitator to keep the IEP meeting focused on developing an IEP that is reasonably calculated to provide the student with a FAPE.

For general information regarding the State-coordinated Facilitated IEP system or to schedule an FIEP training, please contact the Alternative Dispute Resolution ADR Specialist, Lawton Jackson at 602-542-7579.

State coordinated IEP meeting facilitations are available now, and the ADR Specialist can assist with any questions or requests regarding scheduling a facilitated IEP. The ADR Specialist can also assist with scheduling FIEP trainings, which are currently booking as early as February 2019.”
