Appellants wrote to the school board of the school district stating that the district violated their Constitutional rights under the First and Fourteenth Amendments, because the district permitted IEP meetings to be audio recorded but not video recorded.
Appellants filed an appeal with the State Board of Education (State Board) seeking an order requiring the school district to permit them to video record meetings with school staff, including IEP meetings.
Appellee filed a Motion to Dismiss the appeal on the grounds that the State Board does not have jurisdiction to hear the appeal, because there was no decision by the school board.
Appellants argue that the school board must take action if there is a violation of their Constitutional rights.
ALJ concludes that the school board has no obligation to hear the complaint. Accordingly, the State Board has no jurisdiction, and the appeal is dismissed.
