In Appeal No. 11-041, the SRO deals with an IHO decision denying funding for the Robert Louis Stevenson School. The decision deals with a number of important issues including:
The implications of Mr. and Mrs. A. on behalf of D.A. v. NYC DOE (a recent SDNY decision)
The issue of notice
Reductions in awards for reimbursement/funding
Ordering reimbursement "upon proof of payment by parents"
Ultimately, the SRO annuls the IHO's decision and orders the district to reimburse parents for 75% of the costs of the program upon the parents' submission of proof of payment to the district.
