    Answered . The short answer is yes you can, but the "receiving" school district has the right to say no. For children with special needs, a home school district will sometimes place a child in a neighboring district if it does not have an appropriate placement. In that case, the child would still be enrolled in the home district although placed in the neighboring district.
