Mediation Request Form

Although use of the form is not required, this form may be used to request mediation.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

The Special Education Dispute Resolution Systems Handbook is designed to assist parents, school officials, and other interested parties in understanding and working through TEA's special education dispute resolution system. The handbook contains information about the mediation program including FAQs but is not intended to be legal advice. A party needing legal advice concerning a special education matter should contact a private attorney as TEA cannot provide legal assistance.  Click HEREfor a link to the Spanish translation of the Dispute Resolution Handbook.
