Alternative Dispute Resolution

Funds are used by local education agencies (LEAs) through the Special Education Local Plan Area (SELPA) to develop and test procedures, materials, and training to support alternate dispute resolution (ADR) in special education. Parent or guardians of students with disabilities, local education agencies and SELPAs may utilize the ADR program to resolve disputes at the local level.
