Out-of-state move did not moot parent’s reimbursement claim

Tuesday, April 17th, 2012

E.D. v. Newburyport Public Schools, 57 IDELR 91 (1st Cir. 2011): The Court of Appeals reversed the district court’s dismissal of a claim for private school tuition reimbursement.  The district court incorrectly determined that the parents’ move out of state mooted their claim.  Although the move ended the school district’s future obligation to provide the student a free appropriate public education (FAPE), it did not prevent the parents from seeking reimbursement for their past unilateral private school placement, where the parents lived within the school district during the time period relevant to the parent’s reimbursement claim.
