Child Find Notice
In accordance with federal special education law, IDEA 2004, the Reading Public Schools are conducting child find activities for students who live in Reading and attend private schools located in Reading. This federal requirement also applies to Reading students who attend private schools outside of Reading. Child find activities require the Reading Public Schools to evaluate students who, based upon the suspicion of the presence of a disability, may meet special education eligibility criteria. The Reading Public School District is also committed to identifying children before their third birthday in order to provide early intervention services for three and four year-olds. If you suspect that your child, at any age, may need an evaluation to determine eligibility for special education services, you may request an evaluation, at no cost, at your district school. Please contact the Student Services Office at 781-942-9129 for more information.
