Case Summary

This is a case about the District of Columbia's alleged failure to provide special education and related services to incarcerated students during the COVID-19 pandemic.  D.C. Public Schools was the service provider for certain high school students with disabilities and special education needs, who were enrolled in the D.C. Jail's on-site school through the Inspiring Youth Program (IYP).  IYP Classes for were suspended on March 13, 2020.  For over a year, however, IYP students alleged that instr…

This is a case about the District of Columbia's alleged failure to provide special education and related services to incarcerated students during the COVID-19 pandemic.  D.C. Public Schools was the service provider for certain high school students with disabilities and special education needs, who were enrolled in the D.C. Jail's on-site school through the Inspiring Youth Program (IYP).  IYP Classes for were suspended on March 13, 2020.  For over a year, however, IYP students alleged that instruction did not resume.  Instead, these students claimed that they infrequently and sporadically received only hands-off instructional work packets without any meaningful feedback from instructors, and received no mandatory services, such as therapy or counseling sessions.

On April 9, 2021, two students filed this putative class action lawsuit against the District of Columbia, D.C. Public Schools and the Office of the State Superintendent of Education in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.  The case was assigned to District Judge Carl J. Nichols.  Represented by a public interest law firm, the Washington Lawyers' Committee and the School Justice Project, the plaintiffs claimed their deprivation of a free appropriate public education violated the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), as well as the ADA, Rehabilitation Act, D.C. Humans Rights Act and state regulations implementing IDEA.  The students sought class certification; a declaratory judgment that defendants had violated their rights under the aforementioned statutes; preliminary and permanent injunctions ordering the defendants to take various courses of corrective action; and attorney’s fees.  

Shortly after the case was filed, the plaintiffs moved the Court to certify the class and for a preliminary injunction calling for the District to provide special education and related services via in-person or direct virtual instruction.  On May 26, 2021, the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice filed a Statement of Interest on behalf of the United States of America, expressing its general view that a failure to provide special education and related services to incarcerated youth violated the IDEA.  

The Court granted plaintiffs' motion for a preliminary injunction on June 16, 2021, holding that the students were experiencing irreparable harm from the denial of their education, that plaintiffs were likely to succeed on the merits of their claims and that defendants were required to provide every student enrolled in the Program with direct instruction and related services within 15 days of the order.  The preliminary injunction additionally mandated that defendants provided monthly status updates to keep the Court informed about their compliance.  In August 2021, defendants filed a motion to dismiss in part the claims of the plaintiffs.  That motion remained unresolved as of February 8, 2022.  

Following the 2021 summer school session and start of the 2021-2022 school year, plaintiffs filed a motion in October 2021 requesting the the Court to hold defendants in contempt.  The students alleged that defendants had not complied with the requirements of the preliminary injunction by failing to deliver students with education required by their education plans.  In the following months, defendants continued to file status reports under seal and opposed the motion for contempt on the grounds that they had taken all reasonable steps to comply with the preliminary injunction.  On February 16, 2022, the Court found the District in contempt, holding that the defendants had failed to comply with the injunction, and ordered the District of Columbia to submit individualized plans to make up for the lost education hours since the preliminary injunction order.  On March 9, 2022, the court granted defendants’ motion for extension of time until mid-April to submit the students’ individualized education plans and thereby comply with the contempt order.  

Plaintiffs filed on March 23, 2022 a motion to enforce the contempt order with respect to the submission of D.C. Public Schools individualized education plans, as well as request for expedited consideration.  The court denied this request to expedite the motion to enforce.  Defendants additionally moved for clarification of the preliminary injunction and contempt orders on April 19, 2022, specifically with respect to their requirements of direct instruction for members of the provisionally certified class.  

District Judge Carl J. Nichols ordered on June 30, 2022 that the case be transferred directly to Magistrate Judge G. Michael Harvey for settlement discussions between the parties, requiring the parties to submit joint status reports within 45 days of the order and every 30 days thereafter.  After the parties engaged in settlement discussions throughout the summer of 2022, the court ordered on September 26, 2022 that the case, including the pending motion on class certification, motion to dismiss, motion to enforce the contempt order and motion for clarification, be stayed while the Parties were in mediation.  The parties most recently convened a settlement conference on September 29, 2022.  The case remains ongoing.
