Munir v. Pottsville Area School District, 12-3008

The district court denial of plaintiff's request for reimbursement from defendant under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), for the cost of sending his son, O.M., to a private residential facility and private boarding school following multiple suicide attempts, is affirmed, where: 1) because O.M.'s parents have not shown that they placed him at the residential facility in order to meet his specialized educational needs, the district court correctly determined that they are not entitled to reimbursement; and 2) the district court did not err in determining that the Individualized Education Plan (IEP) offered by defendant in May and September 2009 satisfied the defendant's obligations under the IDEA.
