FERPA Notice

It is the Districts’ responsibility to inform the general public and all parents of our responsibility to make available special education services for students with disabilities aged 3 through 21 years, and how to access those services. We are responsible for identifying, locating, & evaluating all students in these age ranges

Child Find

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. FERPA gives parents certain rights with respect to their children’s education records. These rights transfer to the student when he or she reaches the age of 18 or attends a school beyond the high school level. Students to whom the rights have transferred are “eligible students.”

Statement of Non-Discrimination

Yavapai Accommodation School District #99 does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, disability, or age in its programs and activities, including in admission and enrollment. YASD#99 abides by the procedures mandated by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and will provide eligible students with disabilities a free appropriate public education (FAPE), including following Section 504 plans and Individualized Education Programs (IEPs).

HOMELESS STUDENT POLICY

Through the McKinney-Vento Act, children who are homeless have certain rights and protections to enable them to continue with their education while homeless. To identify and address the needs of students experiencing homelessness more effectively, both the McKinney-Vento Act and Title I, Part A work together to best meet student needs. If your family lives in any of the following situations, you may qualify for rights provided by McKinney-Vento:

  • In a shelter, motel, vehicle or campground
  • On the street
  • In an abandoned building, trailer, or other inadequate accommodations
  • Doubled up with friends or relatives because you cannot find or afford housing
