Does Your State Publish Due Process Decisions On the Internet?
Are Your State Special Education Regulations Published on the Internet?
Some states post all due process decisions on the Internet. The Texas Department of Education tries harder. In addition to loading published decisions onto their website, Texas includes a search feature on their site. This means that visitors can search the site by Docket Number, Petitioner, Respondent, Hearing Officer or Issue. If you follow the link (below), you'll find a good law and advocacy website.
We commend the state of Texas for providing parents and advocates with information about their legal rights and responsibilities.
Other states publish little information is useful to parents and educators.
