The district argued that the FBA was not an educational evaluation and therefore, the parent had no right to an independent evaluation(IEE). In Harris v. District of Columbia decided June 23, 2008, the Court found otherwise and additionally held that the district’s failure to perform an FBA for over 2 years was sufficient to confer upon the parent the right to an IEE.
