OSEP has developed voluntary self-assessments to assist States in analyzing their dispute resolution systems. They identify the dispute resolution-related regulatory requirements under Part B and Part C of IDEA and summarize prior guidance from OSEP in implementing these requirements. States are encouraged to use these voluntary self-assessments to review their policies, procedures and procedural safeguards notices.

OSEP (i.e., State leads) is ready to assist states with questions they may have regarding the self-assessments. States can also contact CADRE for assistance with these self-assessments or any aspect of their dispute resolution system at cadre@directionservice.org.
