Child Find

In accordance with federal regulations, state statutes, and local board of education policy, Bolton assumes the responsibility for the location, identification and referral of all children requiring special education and/or related services from birth to age 21, including students who are in private schools, in religiously affiliated schools, migrant children, homeless children, and those who are in need of special education even though they are advancing from grade to grade.

The district’s child find identification process is coordinated by Student Support Services.  A referral form (ED621) is used to document all referrals to special education.
