Case Summary

This case is about whether an Alaska school district was required by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) to provide a student with blindness and other disabilities with an education a specialized school in Massachusetts. The student was a young man with multiple disabilities, including autism, gastrointestinal disorders, cognitive impairments, and impending blindness. His Individualized Education Plan (IEP) established he needed to attend a school for the blind in order to ad…

This case is about whether an Alaska school district was required by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) to provide a student with blindness and other disabilities with an education a specialized school in Massachusetts. The student was a young man with multiple disabilities, including autism, gastrointestinal disorders, cognitive impairments, and impending blindness. His Individualized Education Plan (IEP) established he needed to attend a school for the blind in order to address his impending blindness. After his parents were unable to agree with the district on how to implement the IEP, they unilaterally enrolled him at the Perkins School for the Blind in Watertown, Massachusetts. 

On January 7, 2017, the parents requested a due process hearing before a State of Alaska Department of Education and Early Development hearing officer. Represented by the Disability Law Center, they alleged that the Anchorage School District failed to provide their son with a free appropriate public education, in violation of IDEA, by not placing him at Perkins.

In a May 30, 2017 decision, the hearing officer found that the district failed to implement the student’s IEP in a timely manner by not selecting a safe and appropriate residential placement. She ordered the school district to pay for the student to attend Perkins from May 2017 to February 2018, including tuition, deposits, and travel expenses.

The school district appealed the hearing officer’s order to Alaska Superior Court. However, on July 12, 2017, the parents removed the case to the U.S. District Court for the District of Alaska, where it was assigned to Judge Sharon Gleason. The school district moved to remand the case back to state court, but Judge Gleason denied that motion.

For the next several months, the parties litigated about the limits of the administrative record to be reviewed on appeal. Perkins itself intervened and successfully moved to disqualify the national law firm representing the school district represented the school in other matters.

However, as February 2018 – the end of the period where the Hearing Officer had ordered the district to pay for the student’s education at Perkins – drew closer, the parents filed a motion to stay put to allow him to continue his education there while the litigation continued. Judge Gleason granted that motion on February 23, 2018. The school district appealed the stay put order to the Ninth Circuit, but the Court of Appeals affirmed in an unpublished order on August 22, 2018. The panel consisted of Circuit Judges Michael Daly Hawkins, Morgan Christen, and John B. Owens. 

On June 15, 2018, Judge Gleason affirmed the Hearing Officer’s order. In addition to finding no errors in the administrative proceedings, she agreed that Perkins was the appropriate placement for the student given their educational needs. 

The school district again appealed to the Ninth Circuit. However, while the appeal was pending, the parties continued to litigate in the District Court. The parents moved for attorneys’ fees, which Judge Gleason eventually denied, while the school district requested access to the student and to suspend tuition payments at Perkins. The district’s request led Perkins to intervene in the case for a second time. Before the appeal and remaining district court litigation could be resolved, the parties reached a private settlement agreement and on March 27, 2019 Judge Gleason dismissed the case with prejudice.
