Schrag, Judy A.; Schrag, Howard L.
Consortium for Appropriate Dispute Resolution in Special Education (CADRE)
The overall purpose of this Report is to present the findings of the "National Dispute Resolution Use and Effectiveness Study" conducted by the National Association of State Directors of Special Education (NASDSE), under subcontract with Consortium for Appropriate Dispute Resolution in Special Education (CADRE), regarding the use and effectiveness of formal complaint resolution, mediation, and due process hearings. The study design, methodology, and results are found in Section II of this Report. In order to put this "National Dispute Resolution Use and Effectiveness Study" into context, several items are included within Section I. First, brief background information is summarized regarding federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA requirements for the dispute resolution procedures (i.e., complaints resolution, mediation, and due process hearings). Several initial studies are reviewed that were conducted by NASDSE, in its subcontract with CADRE, to determine the rates of dispute resolution within the states as well as the status of data systems to gather use and effectiveness data and information. As supplemental context information, several other related national studies regarding dispute resolution procedures are also summarized. Finally, Section III provides a summary discussion and conclusions. Appended are: (1) Comparison of Dispute Resolution System Information Participating States; and (2) Parent and School Official Survey Instruments. (Contains 9 figures and 26 tables.)
