Lessard v. Wilton-Lyndeborough Coop School District 518 F3d 18 (1st Circuit 2008) 08-2244
S. Lessard, a mutliply-handicapped student, attended Crotched Mountain Rehab Center in NH. Parents advocated for her to move to a less restrictive environment, leaving Crotched Mountain and receiving home and community-based supports. The appellate court found that Crotched Mountain provided FAPE and refused the parents' request for transition services and a school program in the community. Court upheld that the Rowley standard is applicable to transition services.
