How To File A Complaint
Parents may file compliance complaints against their local school district when the school district fails to implement their child’s agreed-upon IEP, mediation agreement or hearing decision. An experienced lawyer’s help can maximize your chances of success and get the best results.
- Complaints should be filed with the California Department of Education, Special Education Division, 515 L Street, Room 270, Sacramento, CA 95814. Telephone: 800-926-0648. Fax: 916-327-3704.
- The complaint should contain the name and address of the child, the name of the current school and school district and a detailed description of the problem.
- For example: A complaint might indicate that the district is failing to implement the last agreed-upon IEP if the district agreed to provide speech and language services three times a week but the district is only providing services once a week.
- The complaint should specify a proposed resolution.
- For example: A proposed resolution might be for the district be ordered to provide speech and language services three times a week and any compensatory speech and language services to make up for missed sessions.
