Introduction and Issues

This matter arises under Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), 20 U.S.C. § 1400 et seq. and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Section 504), 34 C.F.R. Part 104.4. The Parent claims that the Student was denied a free appropriate public education (FAPE) from the Charter during the 2011-12 and 2012-13 school years. The Parent also demands placement at [a Private] School, at the Charter’s expense, for the 2013-14 school year.

The issues are:

  1. Is the Student entitled to compensatory education to remedy any denial of FAPE during the years in question?
  2. Must the Charter place the Student at [Private School] to ensure the provision of FAPE during the 2013-14 school year?
