INTRODUCTION AND PROCEDURAL HISTORY

Student (hereinafter “Student”)1 is a resident of the West Shore School District (District) with various disabilities who complains that the District has failed to provide a free and appropriate public education (FAPE) between January 2007 and January 2009, and that the appropriate program and placement is a private school. As described below, the District did deny FAPE to Student, but the appropriate remedy is compensatory education rather than the private school placement requested by Student.

ISSUES
