I have been involved, pro se, in a special education impartial hearing on behalf of my son. I would like to publish some parts of the hearing documents in articles on the web and in a book. Is that allowed? Here is a list of all the documents I might like to draw upon (I would redact identifying features and use pseudonyms for names):
My exhibits, which include my son's educational records, email correspondence with the district, and my hearing request letter
The hearing transcript (I contacted the transcription service to see if they mind; the manager is out this week but they will get back to me when she is back)
My closing argument
The district's closing argument
The hearing officer's decision (which will be posted on the state education department's website in a few months, with our names redacted, but with the name of the hearing officer not redacted)
My petition of appeal to the state review office, with memorandum of law and the entire email correspondence the district lawyer and I had with the hearing officer as an additional exhibit (note, the district lawyer and I were required to cc each other on all of that correspondence)
The district's Answer to the state review office, with a memorandum of law
My Reply to the Answer
The review officer's decision, which will eventually be posted on the state education department's website
I plan to use pseudonyms for my son and me and the rest of our family.
I noticed that some hearing officer decisions and some review office decisions include last names of district witnesses. I think that ethically I should omit them, even if the state doesn't redact them.
