Massachusetts Approved Private Special Education Schools

March 2007

Dear Interested Parties:

We are pleased to provide you with the March 2007 update of our "Approved Massachusetts In-State Day and Residential Private Special Education School Programs" directory. This directory is designed to provide assistance to local special education administrators, teachers and parents when placing eligible students with special education needs in private day or residential programs.

This directory has been updated to reflect the school year 2006-2007 and includes new private day and residential programs that the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education has approved throughout the past year pursuant to 603 CMR 18.00 and 28.09. Tuition rates that are set by the Operational Services Division of the Executive Office of Administration and Finance can be found by choosing "Special Education Pricing".

Once again, the Department wishes to remind school districts and interested parties of the required procedures for the approval of schools serving disabled students in programs operated outside the Commonwealth. These procedures were originally issued in May 1997 and are provided at the end of this directory.

A copy of this book may be obtained below or by contacting Program Quality Assurance Services (PQA) at (781) 338-3700. Programmatic or procedural questions regarding the placement of students with special education needs in these approved schools should be directed to PQA.

Sincerely,

Darlene Lynch
Director
Program Quality Assurance Services
