Under Special Education law, each locality is "required to maintain an active and continuing child find program designed to identify, locate and evaluate those children residing in the jurisdiction who are birth to age 21, inclusive, who are in need of special education and related services.” 8 VAC 20-8-50
Child Find activities are ongoing and implemented through Child Study committees within each of the schools in Greene County. The teams are implemented to meet the educational needs of individual children who are having difficulty in the general setting. The Committee will review existing data in order to make recommendations in meeting the child’s needs; they then review the results of the recommendations. The Child Study committee may refer a child for an evaluation for special education. The procedures for special education eligibility are to determine if a disabling condition exists as defined under federal and state guidelines.
