Legal Answers
Q. Do school districts ever pay for PHP or IOP programs for students with an IEP under the emotional disturbance category?
A: School districts are required to provide students on IEPs a free appropriate public education. You would have the burden of proving that your child requires the PHP or IOP in order to access his/her education.
Q. How much trouble could my mom get in for being abusive?
A: Are you a minor? You can talk to a trusted teacher or guidance counselor at school. Another option would be to self-report to the Department of Children and Families by calling 508-910-1000.

Q. My son was referred out of district for school. Can I get access to the financial transfers between school and district?
A: It is a violation of IDEA for schools to place a student on an IEP out of district (or in any setting really) without parental consent. Moreover, placement should not be determined based on finances, but the needs of the student. I recommend contacting a local attorney, as I do not think, based on your description, that it is just a matter of proving a financial relationship.
