Impartial Hearing Officer (IHO) Training.Opportunity Description
The Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEA), was enacted by Congress in 1975 to ensure that children with disabilities could receive a Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE), just like other children. Under IDEA, a parent or a public agency may request a due process hearing to resolve a dispute related to the identification, evaluation, or educational placement of a child with a disability. Filing a due process complaint begins the process that may lead to a formal due process hearing where an impartial hearing officer (IHO) decides the outcome of the dispute. The Office for Exceptional Children (OEC) is responsible for maintaining a list of qualified IHOs to conduct impartial due process hearings. Per federal and state law, among the qualifications of an IHO, one must possess the following: a knowledge and understanding of the provisions of IDEA, federal and state regulations pertaining to IDEA and the current case law decisions that impact IDEA due process decisions.
