BACKGROUND

Student is currently in tenth grade in the Centennial School District. Student and the District entered into a settlement agreement in November, 2005.

The settlement does not address any timelines in which the Evaluation Report and IEP should be completed.

ISSUE

Did the District conduct the evaluation and issue an IEP in a timely fashion?

If not, is compensatory education warranted from November 16, 2005 until January 25, 2006?
