Annual Public Notice

In compliance with state and federal law, the Pennsylvania Leadership Charter School will provide each special education student without discrimination or cost to the student or family, those related aids, services or accommodations which are needed to provide equal opportunity to participate in and obtain the benefits of the school program and extracurricular activities to the maximum extent appropriate to the student’s abilities.

In order to qualify as a protected special needs student, the child must be of school age with a physical or mental disability that substantially limits or prohibits participation in or access to an aspect of the school program. These services and protections for special education students are distinct from those applicable to all eligible or exceptional students enrolled (or seeking enrollment) in special education programs.

For further information on the evaluation procedures and provisions of services to protected special education students, contact the Pennsylvania Leadership Charter School at 610-701-3333, or via email at info@palcs.org.
