Rights of Children with Disabilities Enrolled by their Parents in Private Schools SPAN Factsheet 011-16

When parents elect to send their child with a disability to a private school at their own expense (even a religious school), the district still has obligations with respect to addressing the child’s disability. While those obligations are not the same as what’s required for children with a disability educated in a public school, those obligations are important for parents to know.
