All students are entitled to a free an appropriate education under FAPE.
It is always the goal of for students to be educated in their home school, in their neighborhood, near their families, siblings, and friends. However, there are times when a student’s learning needs are so specific, that the educational options in their home school or home district are not able to meet the student’s needs.
As a result, the district is responsible for working with the student and his/her family to find a more appropriate placement within the least restrictive environment possible. Through the Individualized Education Plan [IEP] process, the student and his/her education team consider multiple placement options.
This meeting(s) will result in a decision for the most education appropriate placement option for the student. The referring school district will make contact with the Therapeutic Day School to begin the admissions process.
CDH Education Center’s admission’s process is non-discriminatory, based on the school’s ability to meet the needs of the student, and based on availability. The admissions process includes comprehensive interview and needs assessments, direct observation, short and long term family and educational goal identification, parent involvement interview.
