DRN Announces Transportation Victory for Philadelphia School District Students

Friends –

The Philadelphia Coalition of Special Education Advocates, of which the Disability Rights Network of Pennsylvania (DRN) is a member, recently filed a complaint with the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) against the School District of Philadelphia for its failure to provide appropriate and timely transportation to students with disabilities.  Click here to view the complaint.

On June 29, 2015, PDE found that the School District had in fact violated the students’ rights under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and ordered the School District to correct the problems and compensate students for missed school hours.  Click here to view the Complaint Investigation Report.
