State’s “dual enrollment” education law (NY educ. 3602-c), parents who
enroll their child in a nonpublic school who are seeking dual
enrollment services (special education, gifted education and/or
career/vocational education) for their child must file a written
request for services on or by June first preceding the school year in
which services are sought. If the nonpublic school is located outside
the district of residence, then parents must also make the request
with the district of location where the nonpublic school is located.
To ensure timely arrangements are made, you are encouraged to request
services and notify the applicable districts as early as possible. The
location of the nonpublic school will directly impact which district
is programmatically responsible to provide supports and services to
eligible students and to determine eligibility for participation in
If you enroll your child in a nonpublic school at your own expense and suspect that your child has a disability, you may refer your child to the school district where the nonpublic school is located to obtain (at no cost to you) an evaluation which will be reviewed by committee to determine your child’s eligibility for special education and to develop appropriate programs, supports and services, as necessary and appropriate. Parents may request special education services from the public school district where the nonpublic school is located within 30 days of the determination that the child qualifies as a student with a disability. Students who are home instructed by their parents are considered enrolled in a nonpublic school for purposes of accessing and obtaining special education services only.
Referrals for dual enrollment services should be directed to: Paul Morcone, UPK-12 Assistant Principal, 518-373-6100 ext. 30000, firstname.lastname@example.org.
