Child Find/Referral Process Public Notice
The Mascenic Regional School District seeks to locate and identify all children who may have an educational disability. Any person may refer for evaluation a child under the age of 21 for evaluation for the reasons including, but not limited to, the following:
Failing to pass a hearing or vision screening
Unsatisfactory performance on group achievement or accountability measures
Receiving multiple academic or behavioral warnings
Repeatedly failing one or more subjects
The child find requirements of the district also apply to highly mobile children, homeless children, children who are suspected of having an educational disability even though they are advancing from grade to grade. Child Find also includes those children in grades K-12 who attend approved, non-public private schools within the geographic boundaries of the Mascenic Regional School District, regardless of where the student resides.
Referrals may be initiated in a variety of ways. The Special Education Coordinator may be contacted at 603-721-0169, on behalf of children who have not yet entered kindergarten. For children who attend the Mascenic Regional School District, building principals may be contacted by anyone wishing to initiate a referral.
