Family Engagement Project

Family Engagement Project


Parent and kids

The Parent Engagement Project is a service to parents who are preparing to participate in mediation and/or represent themselves in a due process hearing.

ODR’s Parent Engagement Project Manager will answer procedural questions to help parents understand the mechanics of mediation as well as various procedures involved in preparing for a due process hearing, such as how to prepare exhibits (ordering and numbering) and other information contained in ODR’s Parent Guide.

The manager’s approach to serving parents is based on effective parent engagement practices; she does not provide advocacy or legal advice.
