Contra Costa SELPA's model of facilitation for Resolution Meetings has proven highly successful in the first year of implementation.  Drawing on techniques from IEP facilitation and local mediation, our trained Resolution Meeting Managers lead participants through a simple process of reviewing issues, clarifying positions, analyzing differences and writing agreements.  With or without attorneys present, this process has resulted in a 70% success rate in settling Due Process cases in a 16 district local consortium.  Participants in this session will learn and have an opportunity to practice the 4-step process.  They will also have experience writing a response to a complaint, filing a notice of insufficiency, and developing a written agreement containing key elements.  A typical Due Process scenario will be examined, with participants portraying the roles of parent, administrators and Resolution Meeting Managers.
