(1.46) Are there opportunities to resolve my complaint before an actual hearing?

Yes. If you file a due process request, the district must offer you the opportunity to participate in a pre-hearing “resolution session” or “resolution meeting.”

However, both sides may waive the resolution session in writing and agree to use mediation instead. If the district files for due process, there is no resolution meeting required, but mediation is available. [20 U.S.C. Sec. 1415(f)(1)(B); 34 C.F.R. Sec. 300.510; Cal. Ed. Code Sec. 56501.5.]
