UNION COUNTY - SPECIAL EDUCATION

Negotiation at IEP meeting; IHP; representation in retaliation action

KC is a 15-year-old 9th-grader who has cerebral palsy, a seizure disorder, and asthma, which makes him prone to upper respiratory infections. He has significant developmental delays and is dependent on a feeding tube. For years, the school bus has picked KC up last in the morning due to a complex and time-consuming morning routine including use of a feeding pump and feeding tube. However, KC's pick-up schedule has recently changed; the district claims it will affect other students and the bus schedules are up to the transportation company. The district finally agreed to speak with KC’s pediatrician, with KW’s consent, to verify his medical needs, but KW has not heard back from anyone since she signed the consent form over a month ago. KW is seeking to ensure that the district will either pick KC up last on the bus or provide him with his own transportation.
