Naples Act

Placing New Jersey Students In Their Best-Fit School
The Naples Act is a New Jersey law passed in 1989. The Naples Act allows public school districts to place special education students into accredited schools as long as the school meets specific standards and requirements.
The Naples Act gives learners in special need of services more options by allowing them to attend schools outside of their districts and is funded by their district.
When the district IEP team and the parents decide outside-of-district placement is most appropriate, the Naples Act gives students, parents, and school districts the flexibility to choose the right school.
  1. The school is accredited by a recognized accrediting body.
  2. The school most appropriately meets the student's individual needs.
  3. School staff is licensed or certified appropriately.
  4. Services provided are non-discriminatory and non-sectarian.
  5. The school program meets all requirements under the law.
FlexSchool meets all requirements for Naples Act placement.
FlexSchool is non-sectarian and accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.
