About Therapeutic Boarding Schools in Idaho

Idaho Therapeutic Boarding Schools

An alternative or therapeutic boarding school in Idaho must be licensed by the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare. The Idaho Code outlines the standards for children’s residential care facilities throughout the state. Such standards include outlining intake policies, ensuring the physical care and safety of residents and requiring a criminal history check on all employees, owners and operators.

According to state statute, Idaho private schools within a therapeutic boarding school may seek accreditation, but it is optional. Idaho also has no requirements outlined for registration, licensing or approval. Teachers at the schools must be state certified and all employees must submit to and meet Idaho‘s criminal history check requirements.
