SRO denies district effort to remove child from the Judge Rotenberg Center

SRO 08-015: The child attended the Judge Rotenberg Center, a private residential school in Massachusetts. The JRC has come under a great deal of heat in recent times for its use of aversive behavioral techniques.
The school district wanted to move the child to a different residential placement. The
parent wanted the child to stay at the JRC. The IHO ruled in favor of the district. In a rare victory at SRO for a parent, the SRO reversed saying that the district recommendations were based upon out of date evaluations. Interestingly, the SRO on this case was Robert Bentley, rather than Paul Kelly.
