Special Education Child Find Notice

In accordance with IDEA regulations, the Atkinson County School System seeks to ensure that all disabled students (ages 3-21) who are in need of special education within its jurisdiction are identified, located, and evaluated, including those attending private school and home school. Final identification of students with disabilities and programming for such students occur only after an appropriate evaluation and determination by a Multidisciplinary Placement Team. If the “child find” process indicates that a student may require special education and supportive services in order to benefit from the regular education, the student shall be referred to a Multidisciplinary Placement Team to determine the student’s eligibility for special education

If you know a child with a disability that is not being served, please notify:
