The Provision of Special Education Services in Non-Public Facilities.
Trudeau, Elaine, Ed.
Presented alphabetically by state are the regulations regarding the use of public money for the provision of special education services in non-public facilities as of June 1, 1973. Information is given for most states on eligible handicapping conditions, qualifications for eligibility, the referral process, state financial assistance, location of private services, local and state monitoring, and followup responsibility. Noted are the following major trends: most states consider all children who are eligible for special education in the public schools to be eligible for private services also; the lack of an available public school program is the most common qualifying condition; the referral process differs; the state usually pays an amount equal to the per pupil expenditure in public school programs for the handicapped; 75% of states provide for placement in both in-state and out-of-state facilities; strict licensing procedures for private schools appears to be increasing; and more states require the monitoring by local districts of the progress of children in private programs.
