You will Learn:

  • How to prepare a standard file audit procedure
  • How to properly document compliance
  • How to properly document the evaluation of a placement
  • Things to avoid relative to file management

In this quick preview of our upcoming live webinar “Preparing for Special Education Placement Disputes,” we will discuss strategies that can be utilized to conduct a file audit and review of file material to ensure it accurately and fully reflects the school’s compliance with IDEA and/or Section 504, its review and analysis of the placement and its propriety for the student, and the school’s efforts to accommodate the requests of parents or the student. Such documentation is critical in convincing a hearing officer of the propriety of a particular placement and demonstrating an educational institution’s good faith in this regard.
