The Office of Administrative Hearings (OAH) is now accepting applications for the OAH Special Education Advisory Committee. The Advisory Committee was established to assist OAH by providing non-binding recommendations for improvements to the special education hearing and mediation processes.
The Advisory Committee meets twice a year and is composed of two regions, the Southern California Region and the Northern California Region. The Committee has nine members in each region with each member serving a two-year term. At least five members in each region will be parents or those who represent parents and students. The four remaining members in each region will be comprised of others interested in serving on the Committee. First-time applicants are always encouraged, as new members provide new perspectives. Additional information is provided in the attached documents.
If you wish to be a member of the Advisory Committee, please complete and return the attached application along with a one-page statement of interest summarizing your experience and interest in the Committee. Applications must be received no later than close of business on June 15, 2013.
