District conducting Child Find
As required by the Individuals with Disabilities Education ACT (IDEIA 2004), the Chardon Local School District continues to conduct the 2020-2021 Child Find campaign to locate, identify and evaluate all children with disabilities from birth through age 21 residing in the school district. This includes Chardon children with disabilities who are homeless, wards of the state or attending non-public schools, regardless of the severity of the disability.
Upon being notified of a child who has a disability or is suspected of having a disability, Chardon schools personnel will collaborate with the child’s parent(s) or guardian(s) regarding a referral for assistance. The referral and all additional information provided will be used to determine the appropriate intervention procedures to follow.
Interventions addressing areas of concern will be implemented and monitored by the parents/guardians and school team. Evaluations will be conducted when additional information is necessary to determine eligibility for special education.
Anyone who knows of either a child with a disability or a child suspected of having a disability who is not currently receiving appropriate educational and related services, contact the district’s director of student services, Linda Elegante, at 440-286-0525.
