A Resource Manual for the Development and Evaluation of Special Programs for Exceptional Students. Volume III-C: Mediation and Due Process Procedures.
Broward County Schools, Fort Lauderdale, FL.
Part of a series of documents developed on Florida special education, the resource manual is intended to help local education agencies formulate and carry out due process procedures. Following a definition of terms and a brief historical perspective, the manual addresses the following topics (sample subtopics in parentheses): notice and consent (informed notice, the individual educational program, independent evaluations); mediation (qualifications of mediator, the mediation session); due process hearings (hearing rights, selection of hearing officers, prehearing and posthearing activities, appeals process); recordkeeping and data management (the working folder); and information to assist parents (attorneys, hearing officers, independent evaluations, advocacy). Included among five appendixes are sample notice and consent forms and forms dealing with mediation procedures. (CL)
