Referral Process

Thank you for considering Turning Pointe as a placement for your student. Our process for referrals is as follows:

1. Referral packet sent by the home school district to referrals@turningpointeaf.org

Potential student packet including:

  • Most recent eligibility paperwork
  • Most recent annual review paperwork
  • If applicable: atypical medical information (ex: emergency seizure plan, asthma action plan, etc.)
  • Behavioral reports and/or incident reports

2. Student observation within the current placement, at private services, or at Turning Pointe

3. Parent tour (the district may also tour if needed)

Turning Pointe is conducting tours after hours when our current students are not in the building. Tour dates may have up to 8 attendees before that tour date is closed. Please contact Mary Butler at mbutler@turningpointeaf.org if you would like more information on upcoming tour dates.

4. Acceptance process

  • Turning Pointe registration provided to family
  • Start date finalized
  • Finalized district components (contract, busing, etc.)

In addition, if we are at capacity a district can complete the process above to secure a place on our waiting list. Placement within classrooms is dependent on student profile and staffing. Our program description is linked here to provide you additional information about our program and services.

If you are a district representative and have any other questions, please contact our Program Director, Bianca Frost at bfrost@turningpointeaf.org

If you are a parent or guardian and have any other questions, please contact our Family Specialist, Mary Butler at mbutler@turningpointeaf.org
