Private & MANSEF PreK-12th Grade Schools
Sometimes, parents and the local school system may decide that a student with disabilities' needs can be better met in a nonpublic (private) school. Some students with intensive needs may be enrolled in a nonpublic special education school (sometimes referred to as a MANSEF school).
Students with needs that cannot be met by the local public school are still entitled to a "free appropriate public education." In many cases, the local school system will continue to pay for the student's special education services in the nonpublic school. However, if parents place their student in a nonpublic school "unilaterally" (meaning without consulting the local school system), the local school system may no longer be required to pay for special education services.
