General Resources:

  • Child Find:  The purpose of Child Find is to seek out and identify all children between 3 through 21 years of age who are suspected of having a disability and may require special education services under the IDEA, including students who are not currently enrolled in a HPS education program, in nonpublic schools, and highly mobile students  such as migrant and homeless students. The Child Find process begins with a referral for an evaluation. (Information about screening dates.)
