Due Process Letters

We are hearing that as of a few days ago, only 100 or so due process letters had been filed, out of over 2,000 families who would be affected by DES funding cuts. We NEED more families to write letters. This is the key phrase to use:
I am requesting a due process hearing due to violations of IDEA-related procedural safeguards.
This phrase will trigger pendancy (stay put--continuing services), it will trigger a hearing about the service reductions to your individual child and it will trigger a system complaint regarding this happening not only to your child but to other children in the system.
Send the written request for due process and complaint to:
Molly Bright Part C Coordinator and Executive Director
Arizona Early Intervention Program
Department of Economic Security
3839 N. 3rd Street Suite 304
Phoenix AZ 85012
