On July 29, 2020 the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals held that the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) does not require a school district to provide transportation between the student’s home and the school district when the student is open-enrolled into the school district by their parent. The Court held that nothing in the IDEA provides clear notice to a state that it must cover transportation costs when a student’s travel is the result of a parent’s choice under the state’s open enrollment program. Laura Tubbs Booth represented the school district in this matter. The decision can be found here.
