Mediation


Mediation is a free and effective process to assist parents/guardians and schools in resolving disagreements.

Mediation is a voluntary process in which parties meet with a neutral third party for the opportunity to resolve a special education dispute. Mediation is available at any time parties are unable or are struggling to resolve an educational dispute.

Parties interested in mediation may download a Parent Agreement or School Agreement to Mediate. The parent/guardian must also sign consent for release of information to accompany the request.  SERC will notify the other party of the request. After both parties have voluntarily agreed to mediation of the issues, then a highly trained mediator will be assigned.
