Four parents have filed a class-action lawsuit on behalf of their autistic children, alleging that the Philadelphia School District is illegally moving the children from school to school based solely on their disability.
At issue is the district's Automatic Autism Transfer Policy, which mandates that students with autism move to another school at the end of third and fifth grades. Non-autistic students do not have to move.
The four plaintiff parents, whose suit was filed Monday in federal court, claim the district is violating state and federal law by transferring students simply because they are autistic.
