School district’s $1,800 cap on IEEs is reasonable

Monday, July 1st, 2013

M.V. v. Shenendehowa Central School District, 60 IDELR 213 (N.D.N.Y. 2013):  A federal district court deemed reasonable a school district’s adopted reimbursement cap of $1,800 for an independent educational evaluation (IEE), since there were several qualified local evaluators willing to provide IEEs within that cap.  The district’s policy allowed that such cap may be exceeded in exceptional or unique circumstances.  The parent in this case was unable to demonstrate that the independent evaluation she obtained resulted from such exceptional or unique circumstances and, accordingly, full reimbursement for her IEE was denied.
