M. R. v. Ridley School District, 12-4137

The district court's ruling that defendant-school district must reimburse the plaintiff parents for the cost of roughly three years of their daughter's private school tuition incurred during the pendency of action involving a dispute under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), is affirmed, where: 1) plaintiffs' claims for reimbursement were not procedurally barred; 2) the stay-put provision of IDEA directs that the child shall remain in the then-current educational placement throughout the pendency of any proceedings conducted to resolve a dispute over the provision of a free appropriate public education (FAPE); 3) plaintiffs secured the right to reimbursement when the hearing officer ruled in their favor in April 2009; and 4) plaintiffs right to reimbursement extended through final judgment in the appeals court.
