District Responsibility for Charter School Special Education (K-12)

The Office of Administrative Hearings Special Education Division (OAH) issued a decision on January 28, 2013 in Parents v. Temecula Valley and The Keegan Academy, a case that addresses continuing special education responsibilities for districts that serve as the Local Educational Agency (LEA) for a charter school. Guidance drawn from the ninety-four page decision follows. Please note that while OAH decisions are not binding on other Administrative Law Judges (ALJ), the decisions have significant persuasive authority on future OAH decisions.
