Right to Attend Policies

Written notification of the rights of students with diverse learning needs to attend charter school and to receive accommodation and support services – including English Language Learners, students that require special education and students that have disabilities – is available in the student handbook, student application, school’s acceptance letter and on the school’s website.

Child Find

Phoenix Charter Academy Network is committed to helping scholars and adult supporters through their educational experience and therefore wish to identify all students with special needs, ages fourteen years to twenty-one years, who are in need of special educational services, and who have not graduated from high school.  This would include any student enrolled in the Phoenix Charter School Network.

Additionally, the district wishes to identify any students that may currently be homeless and therefore have certain educational rights under the McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Act.

If you can identify a child with special needs or a child without a permanent home who is not receiving educational services, would you please have the parents or any interested persons contact Marc LewisDirector of Special Education and English Language Development, at (413) 496-4025 or mlewis@phoenixcharteracademy.org
