Child Find Notice


The Early County School System, in accordance with regulations outlined in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), seeks to ensure that all individuals (ages 3 – 21) within its jurisdiction who are suspected of having a disability and may be in need of special education and related services are identified, located and evaluated. This includes those who are attending private and homeschool.

If you know of an individual who you suspect of having a disability and who has not already been found eligible for services, please contact:
