I. BACKGROUND

Student is a xx year-old eligible resident of the Wyomissing Area School District (District) with a learning disability, whose Parents requested this Hearing on two specific issues. They seek reimbursement for the 2007-2008 school year at the [redacted Private School and related transportation costs, and reimbursement for the costs of an independent educational evaluation. The Parents requested alternatively, if the District program is found appropriate they be awarded compensatory education for the 2007-2008 school year until all recommendations of Dr. K are implemented. The District alleges their program is appropriate, is the least restrictive environment, and that since it would provide an appropriate program the various reimbursements sought are unwarranted.

III. ISSUES PRESENTED

Is Student eligible for tuition reimbursement (and transportation) for the 2007- 2008 school year to the Private School?

Are the Parents entitled to reimbursement for an independent educational evaluation from Dr. K?
