In accordance with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEIA 2004), school districts are required to consult with private schools, including religiously affiliated schools, and provide limited services to eligible special education student.
On behalf of the seven member school districts, the WACSEP Private Schools team conducts the initial and triennial evaluations for K-12 students who live within SELPA boundaries and attend a private school within or outside of the SELPA. The Private Schools team develops and issues Service Plans for those students who qualify for special education services, and remain parentally placed in a private school setting that is located within our SELPA boundaries. The team offers staff development/training to the administrators and teachers of the various private schools within the SELPA. Additionally, the Service Plan may include yearly consultation and support to each of the private schools within SELPA boundaries.
For more information, please contact the WACSEP Private Schools Department at (562)945-6431 x8222, or contact your local school district.
