Board of Education of Hyde Park Center School District v. Frank G.

Co-counseling in the U.S. Supreme Court through our Supreme Court Assistance Project, we drafted the brief in opposition to a petition for certiorari that posed the question whether the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act permits a court to order, as “appropriate” relief, that public school authorities reimburse parents for private school tuition for a disabled child who had never been enrolled in public school and thus had not “previously received special education and related services under the authority of a public agency,” 20 U.S.C. § 1412(a)(10)(c)(ii), where the public school district conceded that it had not made a free appropriate public education available to the child, and the child’s private school placement was appropriate under the Act. The Court denied the petition.
