Resolving Differences
Parents and school staff usually agree about issues regarding evaluation, eligibility, services, and placement of students with disabilities. However, there are times when disagreement occurs. It is helpful to address concerns with school personnel as soon as they arise so steps can be taken to resolve the concern and support the working relationship among parents, staff and students.
Conflict resolution options include:
  • Meeting with the student's classroom teacher or special education case manager/teacher
  • Meeting with the principal
  • Meeting with Eureka Union Special Education Director
  • Requesting a meeting of the IEP team
  • Requesting a facilitated IEP with the SELPA staff
  • Requesting mediation from CDE
  • Requesting due process from CDE
Parents of a child with a disability have the protection of the procedural safeguards set forth in federal and state law.  Procedural rights and safeguards are attached below.
