THE SCHOOL DISTRICT OF PHILADELPHIA,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Michael M. Baylson, U.S.D.J.
AND NOW, this 11th day of April, 2013, upon consideration of Plaintiff's Motions to Compel the Production of Documents and Information (ECF 31 & 35), Plaintiff's Motion to Expand the IDEA Record (ECF 34), Defendant's Responses in Opposition (ECF 36, 38, 40), and Plaintiff's Reply (ECF 39), and for the reasons set forth in the accompanying Memorandum of Law, it is hereby ORDERED:
1. Plaintiff's Motion to Expand the IDEA Record (ECF 34) is GRANTED IN PART and DENIED IN PART. The specific items that will be admitted to supplement the administrative record are detailed in the accompanying Memorandum of Law.
2. Plaintiff's Motions to Compel the Production of Documents and Information (ECF 31 & 35) are GRANTED IN PART and DENIED IN PART. Defendant shall produce the discovery items requested by Plaintiff in the Motions to Compel, but subject to the Court's limitations as to how the IDEA record will be expanded, as set forth in the accompanying Memorandum of Law.

BY THE COURT:
Michael M. Baylson
