Evidence of Licensing Authority for Resident Students—
Any human services program which serves students of the school district who are subject to compulsory education or otherwise entitled to educational services as a student with disabilities must provide an educational services plan that includes evidence satisfactory to the Board of Education that the students served shall receive appropriate educational services under the applicable laws.
Standards for Accepting Educational Services Plan—
An Educational Services Plan must include the following information provided by the human services program:
- the number of children served by the human services program estimated to be enrolled in the District;
- the ages and grade levels of children served by the human services program estimated to be enrolled in the District;
- the subjects or hours of the school day for which children served by the human services program are estimated to enroll in the District;
- the direct contact information for the purposes of taking custody of a child served by the human services program during the school day in case of illness, disciplinary removal by a school, or emergency evacuation of a school; and
- the method or arrangements for the transportation of children served by the human services program to and from the school.
The Educational Services Plan, in order to obtain approval for licensing, must also include the following information provided by the District:
- enrollment procedures and forms;
- documentation required prior to enrollment from each of the child’s previous schools of enrollment;
- if applicable, a schedule of the costs for tuition and school fees; and
- schools and services for which a child served by the human services program may be eligible.
Evidence of licensure for Students Whose Guardian or Parent Resides Outside of Utah—
If the human services program serves any children whose custodial parent(s) or legal guardian(s) resides outside the state, then the program shall also provide evidence satisfactory to the Board of Education, in addition to licensure, that all costs for educational services to be provided for those students, including tuition and school fees approved by the local school board, shall be borne solely by the program.
If the Board finds the evidence of licensure and costs to be satisfactory, then within thirty (30) days, the Board shall issue a letter of approval to the provider of services. Failure to respond to a proposed plan within forty-five (45) days may be deemed as acceptance.
If the Board finds the evidences of licensure and/or costs to be unsatisfactory, then within thirty (30) days the Board shall issue a letter of disapproval that states the specific requirements the program must meet to obtain approval status. A copy of the letter shall also be provided to the licensing authority. Failure to respond to a proposed plan within forty-five (45) days may be deemed as acceptance.
