Ridley School District v. M.R., 11-1447

In a suit by parents of a learning-disabled child, seeking compensatory education from a school district for violations of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, and tuition reimbursement, including transportation expenses, for the child's enrollment in an alternative school, the district court's judgment in favor of the school district is affirmed, where: 1) the school district complied with its "child find" obligations under the IDEA, and the child was not denied a free appropriate public education (FAPE); 2) the child's individualized education program was adequate to provide a FAPE; and 3) there was no section 504 violation, as the school district took reasonable steps to accommodate the child's disabilities and include her in all class activities.
