“Education consultant Rich Weinfeld served as the expert witness for a 2e student in a case involving the appropriateness of the student’s IEP and whether the local school district should pay for the student’s placement at the private school to which the student’s parents had moved him.
According to Weinfeld, ‘The administrative law judge applied Endrew F. throughout and concluded that a student who she had previously ruled was receiving FAPE, was not longer receiving FAPE by the Supreme Court’s Endrew F. standards.
The result was a decision that the school district must fund a private placement that programs effectively for 2e students.’
You may find a copy of the 54-page decision online. A discussion of the case begins on page 26; the judge’s orders are on page 53.
Way to go, Rich!”
