On March 5, 2010 Mary Hudler, CDE Sped Director
confirmed that local educational agencies are ultimately responsible. If
a state agency, other than the District, such as Mental Health fails to

obtain reimbursement against the "other than the District" …agency.
This impacts how IEP services are delivered, who is responsible when there is a failure and who should be named as a party in a due process request.
