Be prepared to answer questions such as:

  1. Student’s name and date of birth
  2. Do you have a current IEP?
  3. Current school, school district and grade level
  4. Why are you considering a change in placement?
  5. Has your child ever been enrolled in a Bancroft program?
  6. Are you currently working with your Child Study Team or Case Manager regarding a change in placement?
  7. What are you looking for in a school program for your child?
  8. Best way and time to reach you

Referrals from Case Managers and Child Study Teams

In many cases, parents can start the conversation with their school before or after speaking with Bancroft. Alternatively, parents may be referred to Bancroft by the school’s child study team or case manager.

We will ask for the School District to send a “Referral Packet” that includes information needed before the child starts.

  • Child’s Individualized Education Plan (IEP)
  • All current evaluations
  • Behavior Intervention Plan (BIP) if one exists
  • Any data collection on behavior

If you are sending the above records by mail, please note that our corporate address has changed.

Address all mail to the following:
