IDEA and its implementing regulations require States to have in effect three processes to assist parents of a child with a disability and their schools in resolving special education–related issues. Specifically, States must offer:
- a mediation system,
- a due process hearing system, and
- a state administrative complaint system.
Information on each of these processes can be found on the Arizona Department of Education/Dispute Resoulution Web site at: http://www.azed.gov/special-education/dispute.
