Centralized IEP Support Unit Referrals

DCPS Centralized IEP Support Unit serves children who:

  • Have been parentally-placed in a private/religious elementary or secondary school in the District of Columbia, whether the family resides in the District of Columbia or not.
  • Have been registered as a home school student with the DC Office of the State Superintendent of Education.
  • Have been parentally-placed in a private/religious elementary or secondary school in another state and the family resides in the District of Columbia (DCPS is responsible for evaluating the student; if the student is found eligible, services will have to be rendered by the district in which the student attends school).

Anyone, including parents, teachers, school personnel, and community members can make referrals for special education evaluations. Send documents using the contact methods below. After a referral has been received, a student’s guardian(s) will be asked to complete residency verification. A DCPS staff member will contact the guardian to explain this process.
