Exceptional Student Education Non Public Services provides evaluation services to students who do not participate in the public school system and who are in kindergarten through twelfth grade. These services include assistance in initially determining if a non-public school student may need special education services, and conducting reevaluations for identified students with disabilities.


OCPS also partners with Orange County non-profit private schools to provide support and services to students with disabilities who are in kindergarten through twelfth grade. These services are determined through the Meaningful Consultation process that takes place between OCPS and private schools representatives on an annual basis. 

The 2020-2021 service delivery model provides the following supports and services to private school students with disabilities attending non profit private schools and to the teachers that serves them:

  • Virtual web-based interventions and supports

  • Speech Impaired services for eligible students provided by OCPS Speech and Language Pathologists.

  •  Professional development for private school educators who serve parentally placed private school students with disabilities. 

Private School Meaningful Consultation meetings are held during the school year. School administrators, designated staff, and parents / guardians are welcome to attend. The Individual Disability Education Act (IDEA) and information pertaining to the Parentally Placed Private School Students with Disabilities component under IDEA are shared. This meaningful consultation discussion includes information on proportionate share, services provided to students with disabilities, and the process for partnering with OCPS for these services.Reservations are not required.
