If your child attends private or home school in Paris Independent School District, and you suspect your child may have a disability, please contact Joi Roberts or Lisa Malone at 903-737-7494. An Admission, Review, and Dismissal (ARD) meeting will be offered to propose an Individual Education Plan (IEP). The ARD committee will determine eligibility and ask for a Service Plan for private school children.
After consultation with private schools, parents of children in special education placed in private schools, and a review of funds available, Paris ISD determines what services will be offered.
A Service Plan would then be developed based upon funds available for services for children in private schools. These services typically include but are not limited to: speech therapy, materials to assist private school teachers/staff, or training for private school teachers and staff.
