I. BACKGROUND

Student is a xx year-old eligible resident of the Unionville-Chadds Ford School District (District) with a learning disability, whose Parents requested this Hearing on two specific issues. Parents allege a denial of child find by the District, and they seek an award of compensatory education for inappropriate services from 2005 to the present. The District alleges their program is appropriate and that since it has provided an appropriate program the various reimbursements sought are unwarranted.

This Hearing was delayed due to a resignation of the attorney for the Parents, a pregnancy by the new attorney for the Parents, and an illness by the Hearing Officer.

 

III. ISSUES PRESENTED

1) Is Student eligible for compensatory education for lack of child find, and
2) For inappropriate services for a denial of a free appropriate public education from April 2005 to the present?
