CADRE reviews and analyzes the IDEA dispute resolution data that state educational agencies annually report to OSEP. This information is then compiled to create summaries that provide an historical look at dispute resolution data, and assist with the identification of trends and changes in the use of dispute resolution processes over time. The summaries below feature data for school years (July 1-June 30) 2004-05 through 2011-12. Click here to see the National Dispute Resolution Data Summary.
States are encouraged to submit notes or explanations regarding any conditions, anomalies, or corrections relating to the data included in the summaries. In addition, CADRE invites readers to provide input on the usefulness of these reports, including suggestions and adjustments.
