Special Education Laws and Rules

Home-Schooled Students with Disabilities and The Reauthorized Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA)
"Because Indiana has not sought to define a "home school" as a type of school excluded from the concept of "private school" or "nonpublic school," a home school is a "private school" or a "nonpublic school" in this State. As such, a student with disabilities enrolled in a home school would have the same genuine opportunities for participation in IDEA funded programs as a student with disabilities enrolled in an accredited nonpublic school."
