Private Parochial & Home Schooled Students

  • In accordance with the requirements of the Federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act of 2004 (“IDEA 2004”), public school districts are required to spend a portion of their Federal Part B special education funds to provide identified students with disabilities who attend private schools with the opportunity to equitably participate in special education services offered by their district. As part of that process, we must conduct a public meeting in order to discuss our plans to fulfill that responsibility for the upcoming school year. In addition, we wish to hear your feedback and views in order to ensure that your voices are heard during this process. Finally, we also wish to share information about how students with suspected disabilities can access the process offered by our district to screen and evaluate those suspected disabling conditions.
