In the third part of its Project Education story, KATU News reports on additional information regarding Lincoln County School District’s separate school proposal to serve student Sequoia Chavez, who has Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS) and her needs for a total-food secure environment. The report discusses the specific building proposed for the District’s “public separate school”, which was formerly Arcadia School in Toledo. The report offered the limited information that the District provided regarding its plans to serve Sequoia. The report also gives the timeline on when this project must be accomplished, due to the quickly approaching court hearing scheduled for August, where an Administrative Law Judge will be determining whether or not the District’s proposed location and services, will provide Sequoia with a Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) in the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE). Wiscarson Law will be representing Sequoia and her mother at the hearing, scheduled for August.
