Hearing Officer: Daniel J. Myers


Student (Student) is a [teenaged] resident of the Oley Valley School District (School District) with autism. The School District has proposed a publicly-funded private school placement for the 2005-2006 school year. Student’s parent disputes the appropriateness of that placement, contending that personnel are inadequately trained, personnel do not adhere to Student’s restricted diet, and personnel are more concerned with criticizing Student’s parent than with educating Student. For the reasons described below, I find that the School District’s proposed private school placement is appropriate.


Whether or not the School District’s proposed placement at a private parochial special education school is appropriate?
