In September 1997, the Ridgewood, New Jersey, school district placed J.N., then age 11, in the Windsor School, per the IEP (individualized education program) team's identification of his special needs for structure, safety, and security. As a state-approved private special education school, Windsor signed an agreement with Ridgewood for the academic year. That first year went well. However, when J.N. returned to Windsor the following year, things went awry. J.N. did not like his new teacher. This article chronologically describes the events that took place throughout J.N.'s education in an IEP.
