Is the school liable for family owned assistive technology devices used at school to implement the student's IEP?


While the IDEA does not specify the responsibility of the school in such cases, state law could potentially impose liability on the school depending on the facts of the situation. The school district should take proper precautions to protect the equipment while it is in school buildings or being transported between home and school.  Discuss potential liability with the district's insurance carrier.
