Parentally-Placed Private School Student

Student with a disability who is attending a private school or facility located in Waterford:

 Any student with a disability who is attending a private school or facility located in the District and is eligible for special education and related services (parentally-placed private school students) may be considered for a service plan.  Parentally placed private school students do not have an individual right to receive some or all of the special education and/or related services they would receive if they were enrolled in the District.

Under the IDEA, the District has the responsibility to provide parentally-placed private school students an opportunity for equitable participation in the services funded with Federal Part B funds. How, where, and by whom any special education and related services will be provided for parentally-placed private school students is determined during the consultation process (described in the next section). After timely and meaningful consultation with private school staff and parents of children with disabilities, the District will make the final decisions about all aspects of services to be made available to the population of students with disabilities attending private schools or facilities located in the District. The amount of funds available for these services is based on the District’s proportionate share calculation. If the parents or private school officials disagree with the decision of the District as to the services, they may pursue resolution via the State’s Complaint Resolution Process.

The following formula is used to determine the proportional share: 

Total # of eligible students with disabilities attending private schools (Divided by)
____________________________________________________ 

Total # of all eligible students with disabilities (public and private)
