1.17process obligations under law and the child's resident school district is responsible for any

1.20team meeting to determine whether to continue the child's placement at the Minnesota
1.21State Academies or that another placement is appropriate. If the individualized education
1.22program team and the parent are unable to agree on the child's placement, the child's
1.23placement reverts to the placement in the child's individualized education program that
1.24immediately preceded the trial placement."
