Current NonPublic Agencies

Public schools are required to provide a free appropriate public education (FAPE) to eligible special education students, age 3–21. If a student’s special education needs cannot be met by their resident district, the district may contract with an approved NonPublic Agency (NPA). The NPA provides the student’s special education and related services that are determined through the Individualized Education Program (IEP) process.

Related Documents

NPAs are reviewed and approved by OSPI, May 1 of each year, for the upcoming school year. The application form must be printed, signed where noted, and forwarded to the district.
