What are your rights if you choose to place your child with a disability in a private or charter school? Your child will be covered for limited services under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) if attending a private school but will be covered completely in a charter school. Your child may also qualify for accommodations and modifications in the classroom under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act if the school receives federal funding.

The Complex Care Center at Cincinnati Children's provides information and resources to help families find information on private and charter schools.
