School’s vague description of proposed transfer allows student to stay put

Douglas v. District of Columbia, 62 IDELR 111 (D.D.C. 2013): A federal district court ordered a school district to maintain a student classified as other health impaired in his current school after the district failed to offer a sufficient description of the services the student would receive at an alternative location.  Since the proposed change was vague and amorphous, and failed to assure the Court that the educational services at the new location would remain substantially the same, the Court ordered the district to maintain the student at his current school.
