Special education plans for parochial students: Private schools eligible for public school services, 22 September 2007, Waukegan News Sun, Waukegan, Illinois
Students with disabilities attending private schools or being home schooled can receive special education services from their local public school district under federal law.
A number of Lake County districts are holding public meetings to discuss their plans for providing special education services to students with disabilities who attend private schools and home schools within the district.
Public school districts are required to spend a portion of their federal special education funds to provide special education services to students with disabilities who attend private schools, under the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act of 2004.
Private school administrators and the parents who think their home-school child may have a disability are invited to required annual meetings in their local public school district. At the meetings, administrators and parents determine how best to spend the allotted federal funds and evaluate whether a student qualifies.
