Child Find

Child Find:  (§300.109 and §300.111) (USBE SER II.A.)

Do you suspect that your child/student has a disability that falls under IDEA? 

Washington County School District has policies and procedures to ensure that all students with disabilities ages birth through 21 (including students who are highly mobile -- such as students who are migrant and homeless, students who have been suspended or expelled from school, students who have not graduated from high school with a regular high school diploma, those who are suspected of being a student with a disability and who are in need of special education or special education and related services even though they are advancing from grade to grade, and regardless of the severity of the disability, and home school students within the LEA’s boundaries) are identified, located, and evaluated. The determination that a student is a “student with a disability” under these procedures must be made on an individual basis, by a team made up of the parent and school personnel determined by the student’s LEA.

If you suspect your child may be eligible for special education services under IDEA, please first contact your local school special education department (List of SpEd School Department Chairs). You may also try the WCSD District Office at 435-673-3553 ext. 5137 or ext. 5147 (for school students ages 5-21), and if 435-673-1557 (for special ed preschool ages 3-5).

¿Sospecha que su niño o estudiante tiene una discapacidad que cae bajo IDEA?

 El Distrito Escolar del Condado de Washington tiene políticas y procedimientos para asegurar que todos los estudiantes con disabilidades desde recién nacidos a 21 años (incluyendo estudiantes que son móviles, tal como estudiantes que son migrantes o no tienen hogar, estudiantes que han sido suspendidos o expulsados de la escuela, estudiantes que no se han graduado de High School con un diploma regular de High School, aquellos que se sospeche que son estudiantes con disabilidad o que están en necesidad de educación especial o educación especial y servicios relacionados dentro de los límites de LEA) sean identificados, localizados, y evaluados. La determinación que un estudiante es un ‘estudiante con una disabilidad’ dentro de estos procedimientos debe ser hecho caso por caso, por un equipo hecho del padre (madre o tutor) y personal escolar determinado por el LEA del estudiante.
