Advisory Opinion Process

The advisory opinion process is an optional dispute resolution process available to parties who have requested a due process hearing.

Each party is allocated one hour to give a brief presentation of its case, after which the hearing officer issues an oral, nonbinding opinion within an hour of the close of the presentations. The parties may agree prior to the commencement of the process, apart from the hearing officer, to make the resulting opinion binding on the parties.
