Public, Charter and Voucher School and the Rights of Students with Disabilities
Each year the options for educating children become greater and more confusing. This presentation will give you an overview of what are the options under school choice and how these different systems are required to meet the needs of students with disabilities. It will educate parents on the new special needs voucher and the overall voucher system and the rights of students with disabilities. This presentation will help learn what questions they should be asking when enrolling students in any public, charter, or private school.
