Due Process Hearing Handbook.
Oregon State Dept. of Education, Salem.
Seeking to inform hearing officers in Oregon of due process procedures in cases involving handicapped students, this handbook describes the rights and obligations of parents and school districts, the legal basis for such hearings, and the steps involved in the conduct of hearings. The handbook affirms the rights of parents to inspect and copy their child's educational records, to request that such records be amended, or to seek an independent evaluation. Other topics include the appointment of surrogate parents and notice requirements. Specific procedures for conducting hearings are presented, including statement of issues, burden of proof, questioning, objections, and rules of evidence. The appendix includes sample legal forms, and relevant excerpts from the Federal Register, Oregon Revised Statutes, and Oregon Administrative Rules. (JEH)
