OAH case nos. 2017070729 & 2017060297,
Student v. East Whittier City School District
Court determined that Student, whose basis of eligibility of special education services was Intellectual Disability, had been making progress in his general education-based program and that a general education placement with appropriate supports offered him a placement in the least restrictive environment appropriate in light of his circumstances. Court found that Student received some educational benefit from full-inclusion during kindergarten even though District did not provide appropriate inclusion and behavior support.
Court ordered student’s continued placement in general education classroom and awarded additional inclusion and behavioral support from non-public agencies to facilitate Student’s successful inclusion.
