For the School District:

Kristine M. Roddick, Esq. King, Spry

Type of Hearing: Closed

Hearing Date: January 4, 2008

Date Record Closed: January 9, 2008

Decision Date: January 23, 2008

Hearing Officer: Daniel J. Myers


Student alleges that he was denied a free and appropriate public education (FAPE) for an unspecified period of time prior to January 4, 2007. The School District counters that it never denied FAPE to Student while he attended its schools, and further that it had no obligation to provide FAPE to Student because he was not a School District resident while attending its public schools. For the reasons described below, I conclude that, although Student was denied FAPE, he is not entitled to compensatory education from this School District because he was a resident of a different school district at the time of the FAPE denial.


Whether the School District denied FAPE to Student from August 1, 2003 through January 4, 2007?
