The  Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and its implementing regulations require states to have a system to resolve disputes between parents of students with disabilities and local school districts.  Mediation is a voluntary and non-adversarial dispute resolution process.  The meeting is facilitated by an impartial trained mediator and is focused on the needs of the student.  The parent and district meet and work together to settle the dispute and develop a final agreement.  District staff and parents having disagreements over programs for children with disabilities may contact Kevin Brown at 502-564-4474 for more information on these processes
