7 Miss. Code. R. § 3-74.5 - Hearing Officer Fees
Current through April 7, 2022
Recommended rates per professional hour and non-professional hour shall be determined annually by the recommendations of the Mississippi Department of Education Leadership Team and shall be posted on the website of the Office of Special Education.
Miscellaneous time spent on the case should be included in the hourly rate for conducting the pre-hearing conference and for conducting the hearing.
Extra time required to educate oneself on an issue should not be passed on as extra cost to the district. Excessive time spent researching the issue will not be considered a necessary component of writing the opinion. If the hearing officer is not familiar with pertinent case law, he/she should request that counsel for both parties submit briefs following the hearing, since clients are already paying for the research to be conducted by their attorneys.
