OSEP: Notice of intent to seek reimbursement not required in subsequent years
For the parent who seeks reimbursement for a private placement, the general rule is that she must provide written notice of the intent to seek reimbursement from the public school district 10 days prior to removal of the child from the public school district or must advise the district of the same at the last CSE meeting prior to removal. OSEP, in a recent memo, stated that a parent who provides notice of intent to seek reimbursement in year one, does not have to provide such notice again in subsequent years.
