Hearing Officer David Y. K. Lee


Student is a xx-year-old student who resides in Shaler Area School District (hereafter Shaler). An Individualized Education Program (hereafter IEP) was developed when Student transitioned from Infant and Toddler (zero to three) Early Intervention to the Preschool (three to five) Early Intervention (hereafter EI) Program. The Allegheny Intermediate Unit (hereafter IU) is the Mutually Agreed upon Written Agreement (hereafter MAWA) holder for the School Districts within the IU. The various School Districts, however, are responsible to transport those eligible students to the respective EI center-based programs. Since Student goes for child-care at a day-care center located outside the boundaries of Shaler, Shaler would not transport between the day- care center and the Shaler EI classroom. The parents opined that transportation should be so provided and requested a due process hearing.


Is Student to be transported by the IU between her child-care2 location in a neighboring School District to her Shaler EI classroom? (N.T. 6.)
