The Special Services Department is a team of extraordinary professionals dedicated to providing excellence in education for all children. We recognize that all children develop and learn at different rates. While some children have few learning challenges, others may need greater assistance. When a child needs more support than can be provided by the classroom teacher, the district begins a process to determine what services are needed.


Child Identification Procedures

The district conducts Child Find activities for the purpose of locating, evaluating, and identifying students with a suspected disability who are residing within district boundaries. Child Find activities apply to children who are not currently receiving special education and related services. Parents having concerns about their child’s health, hearing, intellectual functioning, language, learning, movement, serious behavioral needs, speech, or vision can call the district’s Special Services Department at 360-833-5570 to schedule an appointment.

Child Find events for 2021-2022 will be held on:
