The Act requires schools to admit students immediately to the school in which they are seeking enrollment, until the dispute is resolved. 42 U.S.C. §11432(g)(3)(E). The school must provide a written explanation of its decision, including information about the right to appeal. 42 U.S.C. §§11432(g)(3)(B)(iii), (g)(3)(E). The school must then refer the student, parent, or guardian to the district liaison, who must carry out
the dispute resolution process as quickly as possible. 42 U.S.C. §11432(g)(3)(E).
