Private School Referrals

  • Covina-Valley Unified School District (District of Service) shall locate, identify, and evaluate all parentally placed private school students with disabilities attending private schools located within its boundaries, regardless of the residency status of the students.  If the student is found eligible for Special Education and/or related services, the district where the student resides (District of Residence) will make an offer of a Free and Appropriate Public Education (F.A.P.E.) to be implemented upon public school enrollment.  Parents who choose to decline district’s offer of placement and services give up their individual student entitlement to special education services. The parentally placed private school student may be able to receive limited public school special education services through an “Individual Service Plan”.  These services are decided upon and provided by the District of Location to the private school.
