Special Education Schools
DB’s Tax and Business Consultants can assist you in setting up a non-public special education schools. Non-public special education schools (NPSES) are private schools – somewhat like charter schools.
They deal with special education only where the child has some type of abnormal learning circumstance such as a child who lives in a group home who has suffered some type of emotional trauma that puts their learning ability at less than a normal everyday kid.
Children need an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) to qualify to attend an NPSES.
The children learn the same curriculum as a public school, but it is taught in a different way. NPSES can be in a residential area in a home, in a church building, or other non-public school setting. There are special considerations when choosing a location for a non-public special education school.
