SRO 08-110: SRO Paul Kelly reversed another reimbursement award, this time for the parent’s failure to provide the district with notice of intent to make the reimbursement claim. While the result is not surprising, it is nonetheless notable. Once again, Paul Kelly gives the school district a free pass despite the failure to offer the child a FAPE and then punishes the parent by taking away reimbursement awarded by an IHO.
