Due process hearing called for special education student
Filed: January 13, 2006
Nature of Case: Mr. and Mrs. L have an adopted special-needs son who they decided to homeschool this year, after it became apparent that public school was not meeting his needs. Vermont law requires that parents of special education students submit information about the accommodations they are making to ensure that the students will receive a minimum course of study.
The Department was not satisfied with the description of the accommodations, and it called a due process hearing.
Status: HSLDA sent the Department a fuller explanation of the family's more-than-adequate accommodations. The due process hearing was dismissed on February 6, 2006.
