The Special Education Partnership for the Amicable Resolution of Conflict (SPARC) is a statewide special education dispute-resolution program that supports families and schools to work collaboratively to address the educational needs of exceptional children. SPARC services are ideal for managing disputes related to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), such as the placement, services, evaluation, or classification of a student.
- SPARC services are voluntary, confidential, and free of charge.
- Utilization of SPARC services will not delay or deny any rights under IDEA.
- Since 1996, SPARC has served more than 1,000 families and all 19 school districts in Delaware.
