Child Find Notice

In accordance with IDEA regulations, the Early County School System seeks to ensure that all disabled students (ages 3 – 21) who are in need of special education services within its jurisdiction are identified, located and evaluated, including those attending private and home school. Final identification of students with disabilities and programming for such students occurs only after an appropriate evaluation and a determination by a Placement Team.

If the “Child Find” process determines that a student may require special education and supportive services in order to benefit from regular education, the student shall be referred to the Placement Team to determine the student’s eligibility for Special Education services

If you know of a child with a disability that is not served or attends private or home school, please notify:
