Homeschool/Private School Parents

Your input is needed.  Please CLICK HERE to complete a short 4 question survey. 

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) was passed in 1997. IDEA requires school systems to allocate a percentage of their federal funds  for special needs students who are parentally placed in private school or home school programs.   These funds are known as  Proportionate Share. The District must annually develop a plan for the expenditure of these funds based on public input.  Your responses to this survey are needed to assist the District in developing this plan.  Thank you for your participation. 

We would also like to invite you to attend our Meaningful Consultation Meeting.  Please join us at the following date/time:
