State Rules Killeen ISD Must Reimburse Mother of Special Needs Child

Natalie McGrew moved to Fort Hood from Massachusetts in 2015 and butted heads with Killeen ISD after she says they failed to provide necessary individualized lesson plans for her autistic son.

The State of Texas recently ruled in her favor and ordered that the district reimburse her for the cost of enrolling her son in a private school, as well as additional support services.

KISD issued the following statement to our news partners at KWTX:

"The district is working with legal counsel to determine the next appropriate steps. We have several questions regarding the decision and how special education support services will be provided to the student by an institution that does not provide these services as revealed through due process testimony. We will be seeking further clarification and answers while exercising available options."

McGrew hopes her experience can help other families dealing with similar situations. She plans to hold a town hall meeting next month to discuss the matter with the public.
