Despite a long history of ADHD, severe depression, substance abuse problems, and failing grades, Forest Grove School District determined that T. A. was not eligible for special education services under IDEA, nor for protections under Section 504.
Supreme Court
As T. A.'s behavior and education continued to spiral out of control, the school offered no help. Finally, his parents placed him in a private school for children with behavioral and emotional problems.

When the parents requested tuition reimbursement, the school said "No."

After the Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit issued a favorable decision in the case, the school district appealed to the Supreme Court.

On Monday, June 22, 2009, the Supreme Court issued a decision in Forest Grove School District v. T. A.
