The Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEA) does not grant OSAH subject matter jurisdiction to determine whether a valid settlement agreement exists between a school district and the parents of a special needs child. Such claims may be heard administratively only insofar as they implicate the provision of a free and appropriate education to the child.
