accordance with §303.431, requesting a due process hearing

under §303.436 or §303.441, whichever is applicable, or

filing a State complaint under §303.434. Additionally, we

have provided States with the flexibility to use any other procedure established by the State for speedy resolution of financial claims, provided that such use does not delay or

deny a parent’s procedural rights under this part. If a

State uses such other procedures, it must inform parents of those procedures.

We also have clarified that a State may inform parents of these procedural safeguard options by either providing

parents with a copy of the State’s system of payments

policies when obtaining consent for the provision of early

intervention services under §303.420(a)(3) or including

this information with the notice provided to parents in

§303.421.

Changes: We have added a new §303.521(e).
