June 1st Deadline for Parents Homeschooling Their Child(ren) With a Disability

  •  

    If you plan to homeschool your child and he or she has or is suspected of having a disability, please review the below:

    - If you plan to homeschool your child who is already classified with a disability (has an IEP) and you wish him/her to continue receiving special education services, you must request those services in writing no later than June 1 before the school year in which services are to be provided. Written requests are to be addressed to the Board of Education, Royalton-Hartland Central Schools, 54 State Street, Middleport NY 14105. Please feel free to call Doug King, Special Education Administrator at (716) 735-2026 with any questions.

    - If you plan to homeschool your child who is already classified with a disability (has an IEP) and you do not wish him/her to continue receiving special education services while homeschooled, please notify the Office of Special Programs, 54 State Street, Middleport NY 14105. Please feel free to call Doug King, Special Education Administrator at (716) 735-2026 with any questions.

    - If your child is being homeschooled and is first (initially) identified as a student with a disability after June 1 and before April 1 of the current school year, you may submit your written request to the Board of Education within 30 days after your child is first identified.

    - Homeschooled students who receive special education services have an Individual Education Services Program (IESP). The IESP is developed in the same manner and with the same contents as an individualized education program (IEP). It is called an IESP to distinguish it from the IEP that would be developed if your child were reenrolled in our public school district.

    If you have any questions regarding the above, please contact me directly at (716) 735-2026.
