Parents sue district over special education services
A second-grader was diagnosed with ADHD and Developmental Coordination Disorder and received accommodations through Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act.
Shortly before the student started fourth grade, the parents requested that the student be evaluated for special education services. The district initially determined the child qualified for special ed, but at a second ARD hearing reversed its decision. The parents sued, and a district court and an appellate court both found that the student should receive special education services.
