Were the Parents Entitled to Independent Assessments Funded by the District?

OAH case no. 2020060522,
Garvey School District v. Student

Garvey School District conducted a psychoeducational assessment, a speech and language assessment, and an occupational therapy assessment. Parents disagreed with the psychoeducational assessment and the speech and language assessment, stating that the District failed to assess their child in all areas of suspected disability and asked Garvey to fund independent assessments. Garvey, as required by law to fund or file to defend their assessments, filed against the parents.

The Judge ruled that the Garvey assessments were not appropriate.

Garvey School District was directed to fund two independent assessments – a psychoeducational assessment and a speech and language assessment.
