Public school districts are responsible for Child Find and some special education services for students are parentally-placed in a private school or who are home schooled. These responsibilities are based on the location of the private or home school location. The private school or home school must physically reside in the Pasadena ISD boundaries. A private school student who lives in another district but attends a private school in the Pasadena ISD boundaries receives services from Pasadena ISD, if found eligible for private/home school services. Child Find responsibilities include the intervention and evaluation process to identify students with disabilities. The special education services provided to private/home schooled students are determined annually through a consultation process with parents and administrators of private schools/home school. These services are defined in the Pasadena ISD Private School Plan.
