Parents alleged that Isabel had not been educated in the least restrictive environment, and that the Appellants implemented behavioral interventions with Isabel that were inconsistent with the IDEA and Iowa law. An Administrative Law Judge ruled in favor of the parents, see 24 D.o.E. App. Dec. 193, and the district and AEA appealed to federal district court.
The federal court denied the appeal by the public agencies. The court finds that the Appellants failed to provide Isabel L. with a free appropriate public education in the least restrictive environment in violation of the IDEA. The decision of the Administrative Law Judge is affirmed.
