Special Education Nonpublic Placement

On January 5, 2010, the Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE) issued the “Policy and Procedures for Placement Review (PPPR), Revised.” The policy clarifies the roles and responsibilities of every local education agency (LEA) that is considering a change in placement for a child with a disability to a more restrictive environment outside the LEA. These procedures serve to clarify the OSSE’s expectations regarding changes to a child's placement that result in a more restrictive environment as outlined in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), Title 38 of the District of Columbia Official Code and Title 5 of the District of Columbia Municipal Regulations (DCMR). For questions about a change in placement for a child with a disability to a more restrictive environment outside the LEA, please contact Katie Reda, Special Programs Manager, at (202) 481-3926 or [email protected].
