The Office for Dispute Resolution (ODR) is committed to seek out and offer varying alternative dispute resolution activities and options for constituents.  ODR understands the importance of due process; however there are several steps that can be taken prior to filing for a due process hearing in an attempt to reach a resolution.  The alternative dispute resolution options that ODR offers have shown to be successful in helping parties reach an agreement.

ODR Services Outcome Card

ODR’s Service/Outcome Card is intended to provide a better understanding of the alternative dispute resolution options and the possible outcomes of each process.
