Background

Student1 is an elementary school aged child who resides with the Parents in the Council Rock School District. The Parents requested this hearing because they disagree with the District’s finding that Student is ineligible for special education under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act [IDEA] as a child with a disability requiring specially designed instruction or for a Section 504 Plan as a child with a disability needing accommodations.

Issues

Is Student a child with a disability and in need of specially designed instruction under the IDEA and/or a disability and in need of accommodations under Section 504?

If Student is a child with a disability, has the District failed to timely identify Student as such and failed to offer an IEP or a Section 504 accommodation plan?

If Student is a child with a disability and the District failed to timely offer an IEP or a Section 504 accommodation plan, is Student entitled to compensatory education, and if so, of what type and in what amount?
