Learn how attorneys for parents and schools prepare for due process hearings. See exciting direct examination and dramatic cross-examination of witnesses, objections and arguments between counsel, and rulings by the hearing officer. Learn about rules that must be followed, mistakes people make - and why the parents' case was nearly dismissed.
Surviving Due Process: Stephen Jeffers v. School Board is based on an actual case about a young child with autism (get an update on the case). With different evidence and witnesses, this could easily be a case about a child with a different disability or a different legal issue.
Surviving Due Process: Stephen Jeffers v. School Board has chapters (scene markers) so you can easily skip to a scene that that interests you. This feature makes it easy to use the DVD in training programs or classes.
The cast includes:
Darrel Tillar Mason, former hearing officer
Kathleen Mehfoud, school board attorney
Peter Wright, parent attorney
Meet the cast
Surviving Due Process: Stephen Jeffers v. School Board is produced by Harbor House Law Press and The Virginia Legal Advocacy Center.
Surviving Due Process: Stephen Jeffers v. School Board was directed and filmed by V.A.V.S. Video Productions, a team of specialists in producing educational video programs. We enjoy creating educational media, documentaries and training materials on issues that need more public awareness. We devote ourselves to topics about the legal and educational issues surrounding people who have disabilities.
"Working on the Due Process project was so much fun! It is exactly the type of project V.A.V.S. wants to do: it brings together people who are heartily involved in the subject, it brings to light aspects of a procedure many parents must go through and it has a very real and human feel to it. Every viewer will have fun and learn something new from watching this video." - John Nelson, President, V.A.V.S.
