Wash. Admin. Code § 392-172A-05125 - Student's status during proceedings

(a) Except for due process hearings involving special education discipline procedures, during the pendency of any administrative hearing or judicial proceeding regarding the due process hearing proceedings, the student involved in the hearing request must remain in his or her current educational placement, unless the school district and the parents of the child agree otherwise.
(b) The student's status during the pendency of any proceedings does not preclude the IEP team from meeting, as needed or as required under this chapter, and updating and implementing the student's IEP, unless those changes are in dispute.
(2) If the hearing request involves an application for initial admission to public school, the student, with the consent of the parents, must be placed in the public school until the completion of all the proceedings.
(3) If the hearing request involves an application for initial Part B services for a child who is transitioning from Part C of the act to Part B and is no longer eligible for Part C services because the child has turned three, the school district is not required to provide the Part C services that the child had been receiving. If the student is found eligible for special education and related services and the parent consents to the initial provision of special education and related services, then the school district must provide those special education and related services that are not in dispute between the parent and the school district.
(4) If the administrative law judge agrees with the student's parents that a change of placement is appropriate, that placement must be treated as an agreement between the school district and the parents for purposes of subsection (1) of this section.
