Student is a twelve-year-old eligible student who, during the time period addressed in this hearing, was classified as having a Specific Learning Disability in Reading. [Redacted] (hereinafter Parent) asked for this hearing because she believes that the Harrisburg School District (hereinafter District) denied Student a free appropriate public education (FAPE) for the last two years. Specifically the Parent asserts that the IEP was not appropriate, and that some elements of the specially designed instruction were not implemented.

- If the Harrisburg School District did not offer Student a free appropriate public education for school years 2004-2005 and/or 2005-2006 is student due compensatory education, and in what amount?
