Sec. 1415(k)(4)(B) - Placement during appeals

(4)  Placement during appeals.

When an appeal under paragraph (3) has been requested by either the parent or the local educational agency -

(B)  the State or local educational agency shall arrange for an expedited hearing, which shall occur within 20 school days of the date the hearing is requested and shall result in a determination within 10 school days after the hearing.

The tool currently only includes the federal requirements. Federal requirements apply in all states and states may add on (but not subtract) from the Federal laws. The tool doesn't currently incorporate court decisions or other authoritative interpretation of the law that can clarify issues not explicitly clear from the statute or regulations alone.
