Day Treatment Programs


Public School Districts may enter into a contractual agreement with a non-public day treatment program for the placement of students. Typically, a student is placed in day a treatment program when a public school district has explored least restrictive options and has determined that the student has exceptional educational and/or clinical needs that cannot be met by the school district. Once a placement has been made, the day treatment program assumes responsibility of implementing the special education services as written in the IEP. However, the referring public school district is ultimately responsible for procedural safeguards and the provision of FAPE.
