Under California Law, Financially Responsible School District is that of Resident Parent

Divorce presents interesting legal issues concerning the responsibility for education and "who pays". The 9 th Circuit recently affirmed in part and reversed in part a lower court judgment that under California law, the state agency responsible for funding a special education student’s education at an out-of-state residential treatment facility is the school district in which the student’s parent, as defined by California Education Code section 56028, resides. Download Orange County Dept. of Educ. v. CA Dept. of Educ. (9th Cir. 2011)
