The Compliance and Assistance Division helps school districts stay in compliance with federal and state laws and regulations by providing due process forms that reflect all necessary requirements. These forms are available for school districts to use; however, school districts are also free to develop their own forms.
The recommended special education due process forms include information on parents' and students' rights and due process options as well as documents a district may choose to use to communicate with the parent, track a student’s progress and create and maintain Individualized Education Programs (IEP). Forms that have translated versions available are listed.
Please note: Forms are in Word 2010 format. If you have an older version of Word, save forms to your computer and then open from that location .
