Conflict Resolution Program

  • The Delaware Department of Education (DDOE) contracts with the Conflict Resolution Program at the University of Delaware to provide two (2) services that parents and School Districts can utilize at no cost:

    1. IEP Facilitation Resources
      • A facilitator assists the IEP team members in communicating effectively in order to reach decisions that are in the best interest of the student.
      • Parents, guardians, or the district may request IEP Meeting Facilitation by calling (302) 831-8158. 
    1. Special Education Partnership for the Amicable Resolution of Conflict (SPARC) Mediation Services
      • A third person (mediator) takes a neutral position and helps the parents and LEA problem solve for the benefit of the student.  Decisions made with the mediator are legally binding.  All participants must agree to participate in mediation before a request for mediation can be granted.
