The division is also responsible for agency-wide rulemaking, expulsion decisions and data practices and mediation, among other tasks.
Ms. Case graduated from the University of Minnesota law school. She practiced law with Mid-Minnesota Legal Aid and the Minnesota Disability Law Center before joining the Department as a special education complaint investigator.
