Lori Kirsch-Goodwin of KGK wins Due Process. The issue involved the appropriateness of a school placement. The Administrative Law Judge ruled in favor of the parent that the school selected by a charter school was not appropriate for a student with autism, and that the school that the family found to be appropriate is the appropriate placement. The Judge ordered that the charter school provide compensatory educational services AND tuition and transportation at the private special education day school. And when a parent prevails at due process, they are entitled to recover their attorneys' fees.
