Child Find is a statewide effort by the State Department of Education and the Department of Rehabilitation Services to locate, identify, and evaluate children with disabilities from birth to 21. This includes students who are intellectually gifted, whose needs cannot be met in the general education program.
Special education services are available at Frayser Community Schools in all schools, for students meeting the enrollment criteria. Frayser Community Schools does not discriminate against students with disabilities. An IEP team at the school will meet on an individual basis to determine what services a student needs.
Parents who have educational concerns about their student(s) can access special education services by contacting the principal of their student’s school or the Director of Special Populations for more information. A referral will be made to the school’s Student Support Team to review the referral, develop interventions to be attempted in the general education classroom, design methods to obtain data to determine if the interventions are successful or not, collect data, and make referrals for additional evaluations/assessments as needed.
If you know of any student at Frayser Community Schools who may have a disability and is not receiving special education services, please contact the ACES (Awakening Confidence in Exceptional Students) department at firstname.lastname@example.org. Someone will be glad to talk with you about possible services. Early detection and intervention are very important.
