New SRO finds for parent on reimbursement claim but reduces the amount for inadequate notice
SRO 10-101: This case may foretell a break from the harsh recent past. IHO awarded full reimbursement to the parent for a private school placement. The new SRO found that the parent had not provided adequate information regarding her concerns about the district recommended program in the 10 day notice of intent to make a reimbursement claim. Rather than knock the parents out of the box on the reimbursement claim as Paul Kelly almost certainly would have done, the SRO reduced the award by 10%, thus granting the parent 90% reimbursement.
