If you are finding your child’s school to be inadequate in addressing your child’s educational needs, then it is possible to get the school district or Board of Education to pay for your child’s private school tuition...
Having a child who has a special need can be a challenging journey. The fear that your child will not be treated equally in school or receive the proper education that he or she deserves, is often a parent’s biggest fear. Fortunately, there is no shortage of laws in place to safeguard your child’s special education and ensure that they receive instruction that caters to his or her unique needs. Federal and state laws require that all public schools provide education to special needs students that is both inclusive and equal to the same education standards that their peers without special needs receive. Article 89 of the New York State Education Law and Part 200 of the commissioner’s regulations serve as the primary vessels for implementing federal special education laws in New York State. If a public school cannot or will not provide the special education that your child requires, then please do not hesitate to contact a private education attorney immediately.
According to federal law, if your child’s special education needs are not met, then he or she has the right to be placed in an appropriate private school at no cost to you. However, getting your child placed in private school due to the lack of adequate education can be an uphill battle. An experienced special education attorney, like Angel A. Castro III, Esq., will actively pursue your child’s school district or Board of Education to compel them to pay the tuition of the education that your child deserves.
In 1990, President George Bush Sr. signed the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), ensuring that all children with disabilities receive a free education that is tailored to their specific needs or challenges. If you believe that your child is not receiving the education that he or she is entitled to, then it is the duty of the school district or Board of Education to ensure that your child receives the proper education as well as it is their responsibility to pay for it. However, getting the school district or Board of Education to acknowledge their shortcomings can be daunting task, which is why it is imperative to have an experienced, well-informed private education attorney by your side.
Often the school district or Board of Education is not willing to pay the tuition for your child to attend private school, or they are adamant that your child is already receiving the proper education at their current school. Your special education attorney will be by your side to file the proper complaints and present a strong, convincing case to the court as to why a private school education is necessary for your child.
