Special Education

BASIS charter schools are public schools that provide a Free and Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) to students with disabilities, who are currently eligible or are determined eligible to receive special education services and related services.

Our inclusion-based model of special education enables all students to access the rigorous STEM-focused liberal arts and sciences BASIS.ed curriculum while receiving appropriate supports in the regular classroom setting, with minimal "pull out" time for related services as required by a student's individual plan.

BASIS charter schools comply with all aspects of federal and state civil rights and disability law and are committed to ensuring that all students who are eligible for special education and related services who attend BASIS charter schools receive these services.

If you believe your child is a child with a disability and requires specialized instruction, or for more information about special education services, please contact the Special Education Coordinator at your school.

Pursuant to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) 2004, each charter is responsible for locating, identifying, and evaluating children with disabilities. Within 45 calendar days of initial enrollment all students will be screened. We will notify parents within 10 calendar days if a classroom teacher indicates an area of concern.
