State Administrative Complaint System
The State Administrative Complaint System falls under the State’s general supervisory authority and is a process through which members of the community can alert the state education agency (SEA) of potential noncompliance with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) in the public schools. The SEA is only authorized to investigate those allegations pertinent to special education procedure as referenced in the IDEA, its implementing regulations, the Arizona Revised Statutes (A.R.S.), and Title 7 of the Arizona Administrative Code (A.A.C.).
