      • What is ADR

        Alternative Dispute Resolution, or ADR, is a process for resolving conflicts. ADR helps parents, educators, and service providers develop productive relationships focused on the student's needs by resolving concerns related to early intervention and special education. ADR uses communication, collaboration, negotiation, and mediation to produce an agreement that meets the interests of the parties involved.

        When both District and Families agree, the conversations that occur during an ADR session remain confidential.  Confidential conversations foster open and honest student-centered communication for the purpose of resolving concerns.

      • ADR Creates Mutually-Satisfying Solutions

        Resolutions of differences are best achieved by those who know and work with the child, understand the child’s needs, and are knowledgeable about programs and IDEA.  The ADR process allows all involved to be creative and design solutions collaboratively, thus increasing satisfaction with the process and the outcomes.
