Oregon Statutes - Chapter 343 - Special Education Services - Section 343.183 - Effect of school district failure to comply; withholding funds; expense of independent evaluation.

(1) In addition to and not in lieu of any other sanction that may be imposed against a noncomplying school district, the Superintendent of Public Instruction may withhold all or any part of the funds otherwise due a district for special education until the district complies with the requirements of ORS 343.146 to 343.183.

(2) If the Superintendent of Public Instruction finds that the school district has refused to pay for the independent evaluation when the results thereof required the determination of the school district to be revised significantly, the superintendent may withhold from funds due the district for special education an amount not to exceed the expense incurred by the parent in obtaining the independent evaluation. The superintendent shall use the funds thus withheld for payment of the costs of the independent evaluation. [1979 c.423 §11 (enacted in lieu of 343.077); 1989 c.491 §37]
