I. BACKGROUND

Student is a xx-year-old student eligible for special education and related services identified by the School District of Philadelphia (District) as a student with specific learning disabilities. During the 2005-2006 and 2006-2007 school years he received services from the District in a learning support classroom. The Parent requested the present due process hearing seeking reimbursement for extended school year (ESY) services for her son for the summers of 2006 and 2007 that was held at the [redacted] Clinic. The Parent paid for this placement due to its reading, math, and social component provided by the interactions through basketball.

The District stated it has at all times satisfied the requirements of the IDEA and has offered an appropriate program for Student.

Though the sole issue of this hearing was extended school year services, it was not held in an expedited timeline because the summer program for which the Parent was requesting reimbursement was already completed.

III. ISSUE PRESENTED

Is the Parent entitled to tuition reimbursement for programming for the summers of 2006 and 2007 at the Clinic?
