INTRODUCTION AND PROCEDURAL HISTORY

Student (hereinafter “Student”)1 is a resident of the Pennsbury School District (District) who is universally described as a slow processor and who qualifies for special education services under several disability categories. Student seeks compensatory education for denial of a free appropriate public education (FAPE) between January 2007 and January 2009. Student’s parents also seek reimbursement for an independent educational evaluation (IEE). For the reasons described below, I find that Student was denied FAPE, and Student’s parents are not entitled to IEE reimbursement.

ISSUES

  •   Whether the District provided FAPE to Student between January 2007 and January 2009?
  •   Whether Student’s Parents are entitled to reimbursement for an IEE.
