Non Public School Services


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. 

All not-for-profit private schools in Orange County are eligible to partner (affirm) with OCPS to receive the following equitable services for their students with disabilities for the 2022-2023 school year:

  • Speech Impaired and Language Impaired services for eligible students
  • Reading and math support for eligible students
  • Web-based interventions and supports
  • Exceptional Student Education professional learning (coaching, trainings and workshops) designed for private school educators who serve 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 Individuals Disabilities 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 funds, services provided to students with disabilities, and the process for partnering with OCPS for these services. Upcoming meetings include:
