If an agreement with the school district cannot be reached, the next step is to file for a due process hearing. At this hearing, we can call witnesses and present evidence to support our position, and the school district does the same. An administrative law judge makes a determination after hearing all the evidence. Often, a due process hearing is preceded by a mediation, and settlement agreements are often reached as a result of mediation. I can file the due process complaint, request mediation, and represent you thought all stages of the process.
