SRO upholds reimbursement award to parent of home schooled student
SRO 09-033: District failed to offer a placement. Soon after the school year began, Parent notified the District(NYC) that she intended to home school her child. She then cobbled together a program that included 1:1 services from Lindamood-Bell among other things. IHO awarded reimbursement to parent despite the failure to provide notice of intent to seek reimbursement. SRO affirmed emphasizing that Parent’s ongoing efforts to work with the District significantly factored into his decision.
