Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) involves providing alternative means of solving problems that arise between families and schools.  ADR involves everything from training parents and educators in effective communication and negotiation skills to conducting local informal mediation.  The intent of ADR is to maintain positive relationships between the student’s family and the school as well as to save money for both parties.  Collaborative working relationships between parents and district personnel is not only maintained, but often improved.
