USED Dear Colleague Letter on Due Process

 Permanent link   All Posts

Last week, the US Education Department issued a Dear Colleague letter to school districts related to filing due process complaints against parents who have gone directly to the state with a disagreement. The letter cautions against such activity, as it short-circuits a parent's ability to complain directly to the state about a special education dispute.

You'll recall that IDEA's due process is a core component of AASA's IDEA reauthorization priorities. Read our white paper.

EdWeek has a more detailed write up on the Dear Colleague letter. AASA is looking into this further.
