Abstract:     
While the Supreme Court has considered many types of state plans to aid children in parochial schools, it has never specifically address the constitutionality of state aid to handicapped children under the EHA. However, Aguilar v. Felton provides some indication of the types of services which may be permissible under the EHA. The decision also castes doubt upon the constitutionality of some on-site programs. The Department of Education, however, has consistently taken the position that Felton has no impact on the implementation of programs under the EHA, stating that it would “be presumptuous for educational authorities to extend the Felton decision beyond the circumstances clearly addressed by that case.” Some state agencies have disallowed on-site programs under the EHA. Such caution on the part of state and local school officials may be well advised.
