Bill summary

Senate committee substitute to the 1st edition makes the following changes. Amends proposed GS 115C-109.6(h1) to require, rather than allow, the State Board to enforce the final decision of the ALJ under the statute by ordering a local educational agency to (1) provide a child with appropriate education; (2) place a child in a private school that is approved to provide special education and can provide the child with an appropriate education; and/or (3) reimburse parents for the reasonable private school placements costs in accordance with the Article and the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEA) when it is determined that the local educational agency did not offer or provide the child with appropriate education and the private school in which the parent placed the child was an approved school and provided the child an appropriate education.
