Dispute Resolution Committee Recruitment Notice

The Dispute Resolution Committee (DRC) has openings for new members. We are taking applications for at least two parent representatives, with a preference that one parent be the parent of an infant, toddler, or child with a disability aged five or younger and for at least one member of the public, which could include a representative of higher education, a school board member, a general education teacher, a person with a disability, who has experienced education under the IDEA, or other person with an interest in special education dispute resolution. The committee will approve the new appointee after applications have been accepted. A decision will be made prior to the Spring 2014 meeting.

The DRC meets three times a year to review the Oregon Department of Education’s due process hearing decisions, complaint resolutions, facilitated IEPs, and mediation activities and to discuss IDEA Dispute Resolution issues and legal matters that are related to the IDEA. The function of the DRC is to serve as a primary advisory group to the Oregon Department of Education on IDEA dispute resolution matters. The DRC works as a stakeholder meeting. Members should represent different viewpoints, generate topics of discussion, and consistently attend meetings to participate in discussions and recommendations for ODE.
