Non-Public Schools

  • State regulations require that children with disabilities parentally-placed in a non-public school be served by the public school district within which the non-public school is located.  Westside Community Schools serves 8 non-public schools within District boundaries:

    • Concordia Academy
    • Christ the King Elementary School
    • Creighton Preparatory School
    • Mary Our Queen School
    • Montessori Children’s Room
    • Omaha Memorial School of SDA
    • St. Joan of Arc School
    • St. Pius X/St. Leo School

    Westside Community School residents with disabilities parentally-placed in a non-public school or an exempt home school are eligible for the provision of a free and appropriate public education (FAPE) from Westside Community Schools.

    Non-resident parentally-placed non-public school children with disabilities have two choices:

    1. receive equitable services from Westside Community Schools; or
    2. request the provision of a free and appropriate public education (FAPE) from the resident public school district.
