Expedited Due Process Hearings


An expedited due process hearing must be held if a hearing is requested under OAR 581-015-2345 (Hearing Request and Response) because:


In a dispute over a disciplinary action for a child with a disability, the child’s parent disagrees with a determination that the child’s behavior was not a manifestation of the child’s disability or with any decision regarding the child’s educational placement; or


The school district believes that maintaining the current placement of the child is substantially likely to result in injury to the child or to others.


Expedited due process hearings must meet the requirements of OAR 581-015-2340 (Procedural Rules for Due Process Hearings) through 581-015-2385 (Hearing Costs); except that:


Unless the parents and school district agree in writing to waive the resolution meeting in OAR 581-015-2355 (Resolution Process) or agree to use the mediation process in 581-015-2335 (Mediation):


A resolution meeting must occur within seven days of receiving notice of the due process hearing request; and


The hearing may proceed unless the matter has been resolved to the satisfaction of both parties within 15 days of the receipt of the due process hearing request.


The expedited hearing must occur within 20 school days of the date the hearing is requested and must result in a written decision within 10 school days after the hearing.
