Special Education Child Find Notice

New Miami Local Schools, Edgewood City School, Hamilton City Schools, Fairfield City Schools, Lakota Local Schools, Madison Local Schools, Middletown City Schools, Monroe Local Schools, Ross Local Schools, and Talawanda Schools are annually required to locate, identify and evaluate children suspected of, or identified with, an educational disability under the Individuals with Disability Education Act (IDEA), or children with mental or physical impairments that substantially limits a major life activity under Section 504 who reside within the district.  This obligation applies regardless of whether the children receive a public education. The process of locating, identifying, and evaluating children with disabilities is known as Child Find.

The School routinely evaluates students with suspected disability or impairment and who may require academic intervention or support. Parents may contact school personnel to discuss their concerns at any time.

As the district of residence, we have the responsibility to identify and arrange for appropriate services for any child with a qualifying disability.

If you have or know of any Butler County district resident who may have a child ages 3 to 21 with a disability or impairment please contact Angela Gehr, Coordinator of Special Education Services.
