KGK wins another Due Process
KGK wins another Due Process Complaint. The issue in this case was the appropriateness of one special education school over another. The parents disputed a charter school's selection of a private school. The charter school claimed that the school where it wanted to place the child was the same as the school the parents requested. The Administrative Law Judge did not agree with the charter school. The judge found that the private special ed school the parents requested was appropriate for the student, and the one the charter school selected was not. So while schools can select location, the location/school must be appropriate for that child; it must be able to provide the student with a FAPE (Free and Appropriate Public Education). Not all private special ed schools are the same. So while the private school the charter school selected is appropriate for other students, it is not appropriate for this particular student.
