Abstract (Summary)

The current study examines California special education hearing officer (SEHO) case records for due process hearings held to settle disputes between families and the juvenile justice system. A mixed methods research design was used to explore trends and characteristics of the youths, families, types of disputes, and prevailing parties. Results indicate most of the cases involved male students aged 12-18 who met eligibility for emotional disturbance, seven types of complaints were filed, and families prevail more often in both substantive and procedural cases. The results of this study raise ethical concerns about juvenile justice agencies' ability to provide special education resources for court-involved youth.
