The Court granted summary determination in favor of the school district in response to a student’s complaint filed under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), in which he alleged he did not receive the Extended School Year (ESY) services that his Individualized Education Plan called for. The Judge determined that the undisputed facts showed the student had been absent from school for a large part of the time when the ESY was not provided. Also, by the time of the hearing, the student was receiving the ESY services, and thus the claims became moot.
