Since 2012, Millburn school board paid up to $800K to settle federal IDEA claims.

The Millburn Board of Education (Essex County) has released, in response to my Open Public Records Act (OPRA) request, redacted versions of several settlements of administrative cases brought by students and their parents under the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).  I am not sure that the list is complete.  Most of these settlement agreements, which are on-line here, contain confidentiality agreements that prevents parents from disclosing the settlement amounts.
