Client: Washington Township Board of Education
Court: Office of Administrative Law
Brief Attorney: Sanmathi (Sanu) Dev, Esq.
The Board sought to compel the triennial reevaluation of a student receiving special education and related services when the parent of a special education law refused consent. The Administrative Law Judge found that the Board has a legal right and authority to conduct the evaluations, as well as an obligation to conduct them. The Administrative Law Judge granted the Board’s Motion for Summary Decision reasoning that if a parent of a child with a disability wants a school district to provide services, the parent must allow the evaluations to take place.
