Non-Public Schools' EC Program Approval Process

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (PL 108-446) and Article 9 of North Carolina state law require that the Department of Public Instruction monitor on a regular basis non-public schools and facilities that provide special education and related services to children with disabilities who are placed in or referred to them by a local education agency (LEA). If the program maintains approval status, Local Education Agencies (LEAs) may use public education funds to help defray the special education and related services costs for students with disabilities at the school.
