School districts' failure to comply with the IDEA’s rigid timelines and procedures could lead to due process complaints or denial of FAPE. The Answer Book distills all of the IDEA’s complicated procedural requirements into easy-access Question & Answer format to guide you through making compliant decisions.
Hundreds of Q&As spell out complicated procedural rules in 15 critical areas – child find, parental consent, student discipline, resolution meetings, plus 11 more – including at-a-glance timelines for each!
Incorporating federal, state and due process decisions, the Second Edition guides you through the compliant way to handle your requirements involving:
- Pre-IEP meeting deadlines for providing written input
- Confidentiality of the mediation process
- Recovering attorney’s fees and the “degree of success” needed
- Contents of the IEP meeting notice
- And more!
Plus, you learn about OSEP’s 2013 memorandum on IDEA dispute resolution procedures!
