I'll be moving to PA in a few weeks. I currently live in FL and my son has an IEP. In Fl every child with an IEP is eligible for a scholarship program that has a public or private option. The public option allows you to choose any public school to send your child to ( parent may be responsible for transportation) or the private option to get a dollar amount that the public school would get to provide services for your child , it varies depending on dx, and apply that for tuition at participating private schools. I would say all private schools participate.
Any chance there is something similar in PA? Even if there is no private option, do you get to choose a school in your district? Is it difficult to get a variance, for a kid to attend a school you're not zoned for?
