Bonnie:  My 15yr old son has autism and has transferred from a public school to at Special Needs Charter School. He has mild behavioral issues and the school states they “do not” have to provide the needed support. My medical plan will cover behavioral support but the cost is more than I can financially handle. What are my options?

So my child was going to go to a charter school in our district. However the school refuses to accept my daughter’s IEP. I called them and spoke with them about her needs. They said they don’t want to deal with kids like her and they don’t accept disabled kids. Who should I complain to?

You may want to contact your state and education agency. You also need to find out of this Charter School is considered independent of the school district. Charter schools are either considered a public entity or not a part of the school district.

Find out your state rules for charter schools. Typically charter schools must provide all of the supports that a student needs. Your state parent training & information project can assist you. http://www.parentcenterhub.org/find-your-center/
