The Naples Act (NJ18A:46-14), a provision in New Jersey Education Law, allows for placement in the most appropriate school for the student’s individual needs. The Naples Act ensures that students are placed in an accredited private school that is suitable for their educational needs. Passed in 1989, this act broadened the options available to parents and districts to better meet the needs of students requiring special education services.
Placements under the Naples Act are routinely used throughout New Jersey to fund students’ education. Out-of-district placements are commonplace and done every year by many districts in the State.
