The appellants seek reversal of a decision made by the Lakota Consolidate Community School District to the effect that the District is providing adequate instructional programming for their daughter. They have been paying tuition to North Kossuth for their children's education.
Because their son's interests and abilities in mathematics, coupled with additional computer training he receives in mathematics, makes the educational programs at North Kossuth appropriate for him.
The appellants felt that their daughter's social interaction and peer development are slowed because there are only two other children in her class. Social interaction and peer development is not encompassed by the term "instructional program". The only tangible differences for her between Lakota and North Kossuth is the computer instruction.
The local board's decision regarding the appellant's daughter is affirmed. The decision regarding the appellant's son is reversed; the district can either immediately correct the deficiencies in its programming or enter into a sharing agreement with North Kossuth, or pay the maximum tuition to North Kossuth for his benefit.
