Adults With Disabilities Workforce Education Pilot Program

Private School Requirements

Private schools that are eligible to participate in the Pilot Program may be sectarian or nonsectarian, and must:

  • Be academically accountable for meeting the educational needs of the student by annually providing to the provider of supported employment services a written explanation of the student's progress
  • Comply with the Federal antidiscrimination provisions of 42 U.S.C. s. 2000d
  • Meet state and local health and safety laws and codes
  • Provide to the provider of supported employment services all documentation required for a student's participation, including the private school's and student's fee schedules, at least 30 days before any quarterly scholarship payment is made for the student. In order for a student to receive the September 1 payment, the Private School General Fee Schedule and Private School Student Fee Schedule must be submitted no later than August 2, 2013.

The inability of a private school to meet these requirements constitutes a basis for the private school to be ineligible to participate in the pilot program.
