TITLE I, PART A FOSTER CARE SAMPLE DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCESS

This document suggests a sample process to resolve disputes related to school selection (best interest) or enrollment for a child in foster care.1 It was developed in consultation with state and local McKinney-Vento experts from around the country. It includes important elements for timely and fair dispute resolution and adheres to the legal requirements of the Every Student Succeeds Act. While state and local education agencies (SEAs and LEAs) are welcome to adopt this process in its totality, many states and LEAs will want to adjust elements of this sample to accommodate their particular
conditions.
