Failure to include transition plan for child in residential placement renders district program inappropriate

The district knew that this autistic child had difficulty with major transition plans, yet it merely promised to develop a plan if the parents agreed to the district placement. In A.Y. v. Cumberland Valley School District(2008 WL 2704626, M.D.Pa. 2008), the court said that that was not enough. “When a school district knows that a child requires a transition plan to return to that district from a private school placement and that school district does not include a transition plan in the IEP, the IEP is not appropriate.”
