Special Education Directors,
Following the passage of Senate Bill 1177 during the last legislative session, the definition of home school district (HSD) has changed. The Arizona Department of Education/Exceptional Student Services (ADE/ESS) has reviewed this statutory change and the attached guidance is being provided to clarify which PEA is a child’s home school district for the purposes of vouchering a student. The guidance in this memo takes effect August 1, 2019.
If there are any questions or concerns, please email the Exceptional Student Services Voucher Unit.
