DATE: Oct. 30, 2000

Parents of disabled student sued Board of Education for violating IDEA when the Board placed their autistic child in a mainstream kindergarten program.

They felt the procedure used was flawed, and that the Board ignored the advice of experts with which the Parents had consulted. Held: For the Board. The Court of Appeals found that the Board of Education did not violate IDEA. The parents had been included in the design of the IEP, proper experts were consulted, and the Board met all procedural requirements under IDEA. Since the Court ruled in favor of the Board, the Parent's claim for reimbursement of expenses incurred in creating a special education program for their child was denied. Burilovich v.

At the time of this incident, there was no clear First Amendment right to display the Confederate Flag on school property, thus the Defendants were able to enjoy a qualified immunity from this action.
