child find

Any child who is potentially a child with a disability at least 2.5 years or older, and younger than 21 years, who is residing in Claremont, Cornish or Unity, shall be found, identified and evaluated to determine if a disability exists. If a child is identified, the district must provide an IEP and services in that IEP until the child reaches 21 years of age or earns a regular high school diploma.

Referral process

If you feel a child under the age of 21 years may benefit from special education services due to a physical or mental disability, please submit a letter to the child’s school stating your concerns. The school will contact our referral team to set up a meeting with parents, classroom teachers, special education teacher, evaluation team, and LEA. At this time, the referral team will determine if an evaluation should be conducted to determine any disabilities, and eligibility for special education services.
