Short and sweet today, Loyal Daily Dawg Readers. A court in North Carolina was dealing with the common parental complaint that decisions at an IEP Team meeting (ARD in Texas) were “predetermined.” The court made this observation:
Plaintiff’s evidence also fails to account for why, if the outcome was predetermined, the meeting turned into a multi-hour affair…..
It’s Bouabid v. Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools BOE, decided by the federal court for the Western District of North Carolina on December 10, 2021. It’s published in Special Ed Connection at 80 IDELR 44.
This case also has implications for Toolbox Tuesday—so tune in again tomorrow!
