I. BACKGROUND

Student is a xx year-old eligible resident of the Souderton Area School District (District) with a learning disability, whose Parents requested this Hearing seeking reimbursement for the 2007-2008 school year at the Private School and related transportation costs. 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.

There have been several previous due process hearings for Student. He currently attends the Private School as a result of an Appeals Panel decision1 that has recently been appealed to Federal Court.

III. ISSUE PRESENTED

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