Nickles isn't quite accurate when he states complaints have dropped because of frivolous filing. What has happended is the SHO is purposely setting hearings for dates way into the future so that DCPS can "fix" the problem before a hearing. DCPS, instead of testing children as it should, just authorizes to the parent to get the evaluations done after initial 120 days has passed. So a child that could have been helped four months ago, now has to wait another 3 months for independent testing, meanwhile another school year passes before the child even gets an IEP.


One would think that the District would realize that goal here is to help kids--not resist and resist and then fight over fees. Not everything has to be fought in an adversary setting.
