The Wisconsin Special Education Mediation System helps parents and schools work together to resolve disputes about special education.
We do not provide legal advice or advocacy for either parents or districts, and we do not mediate 504 plan disputes.

Who may participate in the mediation session?

The parents (or adult student) and two representatives of the school district may participate. The mediator helps the participants decide who else may be present at the session. If all the participants agree, others may also participate. For example, some people like to have an advocate, teacher, or relative attend the session. In addition, any party may request a break during the session to speak with someone by telephone or consult with someone who is in another room (but not present at the session).
