A school district was directed to pay for a student’s continued placement in a private facility after the student could not complete the three-part transition period, which was designed to prepare the student to move back to the school district.  As the transition period was an integral part of the student’s Individualized Education Plan (IEP), the student was permitted to remain in his residential placement until the transition period could be completed.
