Who is eligible for tuition reimbursement?

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) sets out that if a school district fails to provide a child with an appropriate program and placement, and the parents enroll the child in an appropriate private special education program, the parents may be entitled to reimbursement for the cost of the private school program. Various state and federal courts, including the United States Supreme Court, have clarified what this means and what the parameters are for recovering funding in this manner.

This is a heavily litigated area of the law with a lot of wrinkles. If you think you may be eligible for reimbursement, consult with an attorney.
