*Note to Families Working with their District

Bayhill is a certified Non-public School which allows us to intake students with IEPs based on a referral from their district. We do not hold spots for districts. Admittance is based on meeting the admissions requirements and available space. We do not offer advice or assistance in seeking district placement at Bayhill. We work with districts when an IEP team has determined that a student requires a more restrictive environment to meet their educational needs, and the team agrees Bayhill may be an environment that can meet the student’s needs. However, we are not required to accept that student.
