Child Find Public Notice
The Newfound Area School District seeks to locate and identify all children who may have an educational disability. Any person may refer for evaluation of a child aged 2.5 - 21 for 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 subject

The child find requirements of the district also apply to highly mobile children, homeless children, and 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 Newfound Area School District, regardless of where they reside.

Referrals may be initiated in a variety of ways. The Student Services Administrator may be contacted at 744-5555. The Newfound Area School District Preschool Program (744-6969) may be contacted on behalf of children who have not yet entered kindergarten. For children who attend school in the Newfound Area School District, building principals or classroom teachers may be contacted by anyone wishing to initiate a referral for special services. Students in grades K-12 who attend private schools outside the geographical boundaries of the District should contact the district in which the private school is located in order to make a referral for evaluation.
