Preparing for Special Education Placement Disputes

Public school districts are compelled to satisfy a myriad of obligations under the federal and state statutes governing the education of disabled students. These statutes provide parents with substantial rights with which to challenge a placement of a disabled student and enabling them to demand a hearing when the school district and the parents cannot reach an agreement. These hearings are time-consuming and extremely expensive for school districts to defend. This on-demand webinar helps those involved in the education of disabled students to develop placement systems for their special needs students that are likely to avoid placement disputes and time-consuming, expensive hearings. This on-demand webinar is critical for special education directors and providers to assist their school systems in handling such disputes.

Learning Objectives:

  • You will be able to review statutory obligations concerning placement.
  • You will be able to identify the student's particular needs and the proper placement.
  • You will be able to describe how to incorporate parents into the placement process.
