Educators have no fear over special education ruling

Special education directors in Hampton and Newport News have little concern over a recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling allowing reimbursement for private special ed placements.

According to the Daily Press, the high court recently ruled that parents of special education students can be reimbursed for private school tuition and costs, even if their children never received special education services from a public school.

Educators and social workers in both districts are aggressive about the federal and state laws’ “child find” provisions and work with private schools and faculty and staff in their own districts, training them about signs of disabilities.
