[Student’s parents] (Parents) requested this special education due process hearing on behalf of their child (Student) against the Norristown Area School District (District). The Parents allege that the District violated the Student’s rights under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), 20 U.S.C. § 1400 et seq. and seek reimbursement for the cost of tuition at the private school that the Student currently attends.

For reasons detailed herein, I find that the Parents are not entitled to tuition reimbursement.


Are the Parents entitled to tuition reimbursement?
