Nonpublic Agencies

Public schools are required to provide a free appropriate public education (FAPE) to students with disabilities ages 3–21 who are eligible for special education services. A Nonpublic Agency (NPA) is an entity authorized by OSPI under Chapter 28A.300 RCW to contract with a school district to provide a program of special education services for students whose special education needs cannot by met by their resident school district. An approved NPA provides the student's special education and related services that are determined necessary for FAPE through the individualized education program (IEP) process.

Application Forms

NPA applications are due to OSPI by June 1 of each year, and reviewed by OSPI for the upcoming school year.

Please note that OSPI is still reviewing the applications for the NPAs with "Approval Pending". Once the NPA has been approved, the "Approval Pending" will reflect the correct application due for next year. If you have any questions, please contact us at 360-725-6075 or by email.

Related Documents

Recently enacted legislation (Senate Bill [SB] 5315) affirms and expands upon OSPI's ongoing oversight of NPAs. SB 5315 creates opportunities for the continued improvement of an important aspect of the overall system of supports available to students receiving special education services. OSPI is already at work beginning conversations with partners from across the educational landscape to implement changes to how NPAs become authorized to provide services, including revisions to the NPA application, approval, and renewal processes.

Placements of Students at Authorized Entities (Nonpublic Agencies NPAs)

Under Engrossed Second Substitute Senate Bill (E2SSB) 5315 (2023), OSPI is required to submit an annual report to the Legislature regarding the placement of students receiving special education services at entities known as nonpublic agencies (NPAs). As of December 2023, there are 94 NPAs currently authorized by OSPI for the 2023–24 school year.

Authorizing legislation: RCW 28A.155.250
