IMPORTANT Reminders for Case Managers when using SIRAS
Private School Students
When a student attending a private school is referred for special education services, the student should be entered into SIRAS as though s/he was attending his/her home school with school type as public school while the assessment is being conducted and the IEP is being developed. If the student is found to be eligible, the IEP will offer services at the home school. If the parent does not want to enroll the student in public school, the student may be offered services through an ISP (Individual Services Plan), depending on district guidelines. At this point the School Type should be changed to Private school non-certified, and the School Attending should be changed to the name of the Private School. The private school name for students taught at home by their parents is “School with No Name.” If an ISP is developed the plan type will automatically be changed to ISP (20). If an ISP is not developed, the plan type should be manually changed to Eligible, no plan, parent placed in private school (70).
