Background

Student1, who is a teen-aged child with a low incidence disability, resides in the Red Lion Area School District (District). The Parents requested this hearing seeking a finding that the District has not provided all Student’s educational records to them, thus denying them meaningful participation in their child’s educational programming and/or denying Student a free appropriate public education (FAPE).

Issue

Did the Red Lion Area School District commit a procedural violation that impeded the Parents’ right to participate in their child’s educational programming and/or denied the Student FAPE by failing to provide educational records for student as defined by FERPA, that is, directly related to the Student and maintained by the school district for the Parents to inspect and review within a reasonable time and under reasonable conditions with explanations about said records as necessary?
