Request for IEP Team Meeting Facilitation
Special Education
Facilitation is a voluntary process provided free of charge to the school district and the parent/guardian
during which a State contracted facilitator attends an IEP team meeting or other IDEA-related team
meeting. The facilitator is not a member of the team and acts as a neutral third-party to provide balance,
perspective and an opportunity for individual team members to be heard and understood. The role of the
facilitator is to help team members communicate effectively by focusing on key issues and moving toward
a productive outcome. Facilitation supports early dispute resolution by providing assistance before the
conflict develops into a formal dispute. A facilitator will not be responsible for creating or documenting
agreements made by the team. Both the parent/guardian and school district must agree to participate in
facilitation. Please see Chapter 13 of the Idaho Special Education Manual for additional information.
