Level 2 Appeals
The Level 2 conference shall be limited to the issues, evidence, and documents considered at Level One. To appeal a Level 2 placement decision, please initiate the appeal within 10 days of receiving notification of denial of services. Use the link below to communicate your appeal to the committee.
Level 2 Appeals serve the purpose of determining whether the original decision was:
- In violation of constitutional or statutory provisions;
- Made through an unlawful procedure;
- Outside of the administration’s legal authority; or
- Affected by other error of law.
At the Level 2 conference, the complaining party has the burden to prove that the Level 1 decision is clear error as described above. Therefore, the Level 2 administrator must presume that the Level 1 administrator’s decision was not clear error.
A Level 1 appeal focuses on the original decision. A Level 2 appeal focuses on the process through which the original decision was made.
