Published: October 6, 2020

Join ECAC as we explain the various school options available in NC (traditional public schools, public charter schools, private schools and homeschooling.) We will discuss obligations under IDEA, the NC Compulsory Attendance Law, and NC home school requirements. NCSEAA will join the conversation to share information about 3 different programs available through the state: Opportunity Scholarship, Disabilities Grant and the Education Savings Account.

Learning Objectives:

Participants will be able to:

• Identify school options available in North Carolina
• Recognize parents and school’s obligations under NC Compulsory Attendance Law
• Distinguish which school options are covered under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA)
• List the three programs that NC offers that provide financial assistance to eligible K-12 private school students
