Determining a District’s obligations under IDEA when a student is removed from their outplacement facility can have you feeling like you’re balancing on a tightrope between the space-time continuum. Erin and Jeremy discuss the blackletter law related to LRE and Stay Put when this type of situation arises. They share the details of a recent COVID-era case from Washington D.C. where the court determined Stay Put didn’t apply since the District did not make the change and the staff acted in good faith to attempt to locate a new facility. The discussion includes suggestions for building strong communications with outside placements and how to balance safety concerns and the risks of non-compliance so you will be able to fly smoothly across the continuum
