Child Find

Child Find

The school district conducts ongoing screening and public awareness to identify, locate, and evaluate those students, ages 3-21, who are in need of special education services. If your child is currently enrolled in school, please contact the Pupil Services office to set up a screening. 

Do you have a 2, 3 or 4 year old?


Join our FREE early childhood event including fun activities, free resources and a developmental screening.


August 11th : 3:00pm - 6:00pm at Northern Hills Elementary

The screening is designed to provide an overall developmental review to any child between the ages of 2 to 4 years old.  Parents will be asked to fill out a questionnaire regarding their child's development while their child participates in a universal screening, including hearing and vision screening. Specialists in the early childhood field will be available to address any questions or concerns raised by parents. Refreshments will be offered and each family will be sent home with a free goodie bag!
